The July 27, 2020, Senate draft of the Health, Economic Assistance, Liability Protection and Schools (“HEALS”) Act provides a tax credit for employers who incur certain expenses in response to COVID-19. Referred to as the Safe and Healthy Workplace Tax Credit (“SHWTC”), the credit is available to employers who incur qualified employee protection expenses, qualified workplace reconfiguration expenses and qualified workplace technology expenses. This question-and-answer format guide summarizes the SHWTC, explains how businesses can claim the credit, sets forth the limitations on using the SHWTC when other relief has been claimed, and addresses other outstanding questions regarding the credit, all in a question-and-answer format.
