Employment tax returns have been pummeled by a flood of Congressional pandemic relief over and over and over again. Dripping with change after change after change, how do we push through and go on? This course will wash you employment tax clean.

First, it was deferral of employer OASDI until 2021 and 2022. Next, sick pay and family leave to employees under FFCRA offset by all fed employment taxes (ET). PPP then blitzed America with intricate employment tax interplay. Then, the President allowed deferral of employee OASDI. Next, the employee retention credit (ERC) burst on the scene to retroactively co-exist alongside PPP loans and forgiveness, but not on the same wages. Next, Congress changed the ERC/ET interplay prospectively. After all of that, IRS weighed in (well, sort of).

How do all of the above compete for the same wages and soak against the other?
