Frequently Asked Questions

What is the FFCRA?

Under the Families First Coronavirus Response Act (FFCRA), if you are a self-employed person including those who receive a 1099, and if you were not able to work due to reasons related to Coronavirus, you are eligible to receive Sick Leave and Family Leave credits. This is your chance to get paid for the days you were sick, quarantined or even effected by Corona. If a child’s school was closed or you cared for another person, you are also eligible for these relief funds.The Families First Coronavirus Response Act (FFCRA) is a groundbreaking legislation that provides much-needed relief to self-employed individuals  and small businesses during the COVID-19 pandemic. By understanding the key provisions of the FFCRA and how they apply to your specific situation, the PBF will help you maximize your legally entitled share of this little known provision of federal law.

IS FFCRA REAL?

YES!!!  But don’t take our word.  Go directly to the IRS page to read more about this program. But be forewarned: their information is rather convoluted, written for tax attorneys and accountants, not the general public.  That’s why we stepped in to make this complicated program simple and accessible to you.  Here is their LINK with further information: https://www.irs.gov/newsroom/tax-credits-for-paid-leave-under-the-american-rescue-plan-act-of-2021-specific-provisions-related-to-self-employed-individuals

Who is qualified?

Any 1099 independent contractor, booth/suite renter, and self-employed individual may be qualified to receive FFCRA funds. To qualify, you must have filed a Schedule SE as part of your 2020 and/or 2021 1040 Tax Returns, which reports your self-employed income.

How do I claim my FFCRA funds?

Thanks to our partnership with Adesso Capital, we have created an online and automated system for you to easily submit your claim directly with the federal government for these funds. You just need to have filed a Schedule SE as part of your 2020 and/or 2021 1040 tax returns (to verify your self-employed income) and have a driver's license or other official photographic ID (for purposes of verifying your identity).

How do the fees work?

To cover costs (which include actual CPAs calculating and preparing all of your filings with the IRS), there is a fee for the service. There are multiple payment options available and are always 100% transparent about the fees you’ll pay. (a) Pay Now - Pay at the time of filing at the reduced fee. (b) Pay Later- Spread out our fee over several months via our partnership with PayPal.

Do I need to pay back the FFCRA funds I receive?

No. This is not a loan. These funds have been allocated to the FFCRA program by the federal government and will not need to be paid back.

Are there requirements for how FFCRA funds can be used?

No. FFCRA provides money for Self-Employed/Independent Contractors to be used without restrictions.
