Reporting Employee Compensation for FFCRA Leave

reporting employee compensation

1 minute read

The Families First Coronavirus Response Act (FFCRA) requires covered employers to provide employees with up to 80 hours of paid sick leave and up to 10 weeks of partially compensated leave under the Family and Medical Leave Act (for COVID-19 specified reasons).

New guidance issued by the IRS and the U.S. Treasury Department states that employers must report the amount of qualified sick and family leave wages paid to employees under FFCRA on their W-2. The leave compensation should be reported either in Box 14 of Form W-2 or in a separate statement provided with the form. The reporting requirement also provides information for self-employed individuals who need to claim tax credits for FFCRA leave wages.

Employers may take a dollar-for-dollar reimbursement through tax credits for all qualify wages paid under FFCRA. Tax credits also extend to the amounts paid or incurred to maintain health insurance coverage.
