PROVIDENCE, R.I. — The Marin, Barrett, and Murphy Law Firm proudly announces that Attorney Kensley Barrett is now offering criminal defense representation to individuals under investigation for or charged with Employee Retention Tax Credit (ERTC) fraud. The IRS has recently highlighted many cases involving ERTC fraud, underscoring the need for experienced legal defense.

The Employee Retention Tax Credit, introduced as part of the CARES Act, aimed to provide financial relief to businesses retaining employees during the COVID-19 pandemic. However, the program’s financial incentives have led to a surge in fraudulent claims, resulting in numerous federal investigations and prosecutions. The dedicated defense attorneys at Marin, Barrett, and Murphy Law Firm are well-equipped to handle allegations of falsifying eligibility, inflating wages, and other forms of ERTC fraud.

“Our defense team is committed to analyzing and disputing the IRS and DOJ’s legal interpretations of ERTC eligibility,” said Kensley Barrett, Partner at Marin, Barrett, and Murphy Law Firm. “We are dedicated to thoroughly scrutinizing the United States Attorneys’ evidence for misinterpretations to safeguard our clients’ rights and interests.”

About the ERTC Program

The ERTC was established under the CARES Act to incentivize businesses to retain employees during the economic downturn caused by the COVID-19 pandemic. While the credit provided substantial financial support, it also attracted fraudulent claims. Consequently, the IRS and DOJ have intensified their investigative efforts, leading to numerous charges and prosecutions.
