Yes. Employers may receive an advance payment of tax credits if the employer’s employment tax obligation is less than the amount of the FFCRA tax credit and the ERTC to which the employer is entitled. Eligible employers should first reduce their quarterly employment tax deposits to account for the tax credits. Thereafter, an employer may request payment of an amount determined by subtracting the employment tax liability from the available tax credits. In the event the employment tax liability is less than the tax credits, the employer may use Form 7200 to request a refund of the excess. Alternatively, the employer may wait to obtain the refund until the employer claims the tax credits on the employer’s annual tax return.

An employer may request advance payment of the tax credits anticipated for a calendar quarter, at any time before the end of the month following the quarter in which the employer paid the qualified wages. An employer may file Form 7200 several times during each calendar quarter if necessary. Form 7200 is filed by faxing the completed document to 855-248-0552.
