Congress passed the 

which was signed into law on September 29. This tax reform package benefits businesses that were affected by Hurricane Harvey, Irma and Maria. Companies located in the disaster zones will be eligible to take a credit equal to 40 percent of an employee's wages, paid within the time frame that said company was rendered inoperable upon impact of the hurricane.  
The period of eligibility for the employee retention credit begins on August 23rd for Hurricane Harvey, September 4th for Hurricane Irma, and September 16th for Hurricane Maria and ends on January 1, 2018 across the board. Forty percent of wages paid to each 
employee within that time frame (up to $6,000) will be eligible under this provision. The retention credit is not a part of the Internal Revenue Code but instead will be enacted as a temporary tax provision.
