What is the SETC?

The Self-Employed Tax Credit (SETC) was established by Congress in reaction to the COVID-19 pandemic, aiming to offer support to individuals such as sole proprietors, 1099 contractors, freelancers, single-member LLCs, gig workers, and other self-employed individuals. This significant legislative measure acknowledged the financial hardships faced by self-employed Americans due to government-mandated shutdowns, quarantine, illness, caregiving, or other events leading to a reduction in income. It's important to note that the refund amount can be calculated based on your 2019 income if it is higher. The deadline to claim the tax credit for the year 2020 is set to expire on April 15, 2024. Please note that claims for the SETC tax credit for the 2021 year will continue until April 15, 2025.


the Self-Employed Tax Credit (SETC) was established to offer monetary assistance in the form of a tax rebate to qualified individuals who had a reduction in income due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Individuals who meet the following requirements may be eligible to receive a tax refund for the days they missed work due to COVID-related circumstances.

Why have I never heard of this?

Many self-employed individuals may not be familiar with the fact that they are eligible for tax credits under the Families First Coronavirus Response Act (FFCRA). Originally designed to benefit employers and their employees, Congress expanded the scope of the FFCRA Act to include self-employed individuals for the first time (as outlined in Sections 7002(a) and 7004(a) of Public Law No. 116-127).

It's worth noting that a significant percentage, over 80%, of self-employed individuals are unaware of their entitlement to these FFCRA tax credits. Act promptly to make the most of this opportunity. The deadline to amend your 2020 tax return for a potential refund is April 15, 2024. Additionally, for those aiming to claim a refund on their 2021 taxes, the deadline is April 15, 2025.

How much did I make?

To find your self-employed income for taxes, check Form 1040 Schedule SE, specifically 'Item 6 - Net Earnings From Self-Employment.' This is your total income before deductions, combining earnings from all your gigs.

According to IRS guidelines, you are not required to provide proof of a positive COVID-19 test or disclose your COVID-19 status when submitting your filing. Instead, you are confirming in good faith that you have experienced COVID-19, its symptoms, related illnesses, or quarantine, resulting in an inability to work and earn income. While no specific evidence is required for filing, it is advisable to retain certain records for your own records. These might include a positive COVID-19 test result, a note from a healthcare provider about your positive test or symptoms, or documentation indicating quarantine. Also, remember that maintaining records of non-working days due to COVID-19 exposure or symptoms could be beneficial. This might include data from your business software or bank statements reflecting the absence of sales deposits during that period. You can trust our simplified process to accurately and fairly account for your circumstances.
