Safe & Green Holdings Eligible for $1.5 Million Employee Retention Tax Credit
Safe & Green Holdings Corp. (NASDAQ: SGBX) ("Safe & Green Holdings" or the "Company"), a leading developer, designer, and fabricator of modular structures for residential, commercial, and point-of-care medicine, reported that the Company has received confirmation from its Professional Employer Organization (PEO) that the Company is eligible for a $1.5 million refund from the IRS for the Employee Retention Tax Credit, which is a refundable credit. The timing of the receipt of the refund is unknown and is reliant upon the processing times of the IRS and the Company's PEO.
"This $1.5 million tax credit is material to our business and will further reduce our need for dilutive capital," stated Paul Galvin, Chairperson and CEO of Safe & Green Holdings. "During the pandemic, we did not focus on PPE loans or other grant programs for assistance. Instead, we designed, built, and deployed a licensed COVID-testing lab at Los Angeles International Airport. Not only were we able to retain our employees but, in fact, substantially increased our headcount during the pandemic. These jobs were created and retained on factory floors, and across the Safe & Green platform."
"Our employees are the backbone of our business, and as a result of their hard work, we not only survived, but have continued to thrive, as illustrated by our strong manufacturing & construction services revenue growth," commented Tricia Kaelin, Chief Financial Officer at Safe & Green Holdings. "We are committed to providing high quality US jobs and this ERTC will help us continue to grow and spur employment in our communities."
