The IRS is sending letters to taxpayers that are experiencing a delay in the processing of Form 7200 (Advance Payment of Employer Credits Due to COVID-19). Taxpayers can file Form 7200 to request an advance payment of the employer tax credits for qualified sick and qualified family leave wages as well as the employee retention credit.
