FFCRA Leave Credits and COVID-19 Immunization of Others

FFCRA Leave Credits and COVID-19 Immunization of Others

1.5 minute read

The IRS has once again updated their FAQs on employer tax credits for providing employee leave under the Families First Coronavirus Response Act (FFCRA) (as amended and extended by the America Rescue Plan Act (ARPA).

The FFCRA/ARPA paid sick and family leave credits reimburse eligible employers for the cost of providing paid sick and family leave for COVID-19-related reasons. The revised FAQs clarify that this includes leave taken by employees to:

  • Care for an individual who is recovering from any injury, illness, disability, or condition related to the immunization, and
  • Accompany an individual to obtain immunization related to COVID-19

An individual is defined as an immediate family member or someone who regularly resides in the employee’s home.

Paid employee leave for specific COVID-19-related reasons was to be provided through December 31, 2020. Other legislation including the ARPA, extended the tax credits for those employers who offered the leave on a voluntary basis. The credits are in effect through September 30, 2021, and are taken against employment taxes.
