Ready to get your FFCRA filed? Us, too! We’ve built Adesso360 to be the most robust platform designed specifically for self-employed people like you to get the tax credits you deserve.
Here’s how the platform works, plus a few tips for how to get your FFCRA refund ASAP.
Adesso360 does much of the heavy lifting for you, including pulling your tax records directly from the IRS, but we’ll still need a few pieces of info from you:
The FFCRA allows for up to 20 days of paid sick leave and up to 110 days of paid leave for any time you had to take care of a child or loved one. There are a few specifics the IRS requires in terms of childcare-related dates:
You can claim specific dates (“3/31/2021”) and spans of time (“4/1/2021 - 4/6/2021”) but cannot use the same date twice.
Can’t remember the dates you had to take off? Here are a few ideas for how to find them:
Once you have your dates squared away, we’ll need to verify it’s really you filing for the FFCRA. To do this, we’ll need two things:
We’ll pull this from your ID, but you need to make sure we’ve got it right since that’s the address the IRS will use to send your refund. If your ID doesn’t have the correct address, you can manually correct this in Adesso360.
We’ll pull this data directly from the IRS, so don’t worry if you don’t have it handy. Still, it’s a good idea to cross-check the information we find and make sure everything is right.
Here’s how it works in Adesso360:
First, we’ll determine your eligibility and calculate your estimated refund. Just a heads up: This is only an estimate; we’ll nail down the real amount further in the process.
If you qualify, then it’s time to set up your account! This will be a unique account that will house all of your data and records so you can start and stop the application process as much as you like.
Next, we’ll get into the nitty gritty and start filling out the FFCRA application. This is where you’ll enter dates and where we pull your past Schedule SE forms. We’ll then automatically calculate your daily rate and start to crunch the numbers to see how much your refund will be.
TIP - You can always save your work and come back later!
Then comes your ID and selfie verification, where we’ll make sure it’s really you. We’ll also verify that all of your information is correct (like your address, so the IRS knows where to mail your check).
From there, we’ll get to the payment details section. This is where you’ll choose how you want to pay your fees for using Adesso360. All applicants can pay via debit card, credit card, or ACH transfer. Some applicants will have the option to pay your processing fees automatically from your refund, but this depends on your eligibility (we’ll suss out the details in the platform, don’t worry!).
Once you’ve ensured everything is accurate and ready to go, we’ll need a few signatures from you. Specifically, you’ll sign:
TIP - You’ll have the ability to access and download all these docs at any time! Simply log in to the portal and pick up where you left off.
That’s it! Now you can submit your application and send it over to the IRS. We’ll track the status automatically in the Adesso360 platform and will let you know any updates we get as it moves through the system.
