Payroll Tax Credit for COVID-19 Sick and Family Leave [Updated April 1, 2021]   [open pdf - 465KB]

From the Document: "Beginning in April 2020, employers were entitled to payroll tax credits for paid leave required in response to the Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic. For employers choosing to continue providing eligible paid leave, these tax credits have been extended through September 2021. The paid leave mandate, however, expired at the end of 2020. This In Focus provides an overview of the tax credits for paid leave initially provided in the Families First Coronavirus Response Act (FFCRA; P.L. 116-127) and later extended in the COVID-related Tax Relief Act of 2020, enacted as Division N, Title II, Subtitle B of the Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2021 (P.L. 116- 260) and the American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA: P.L. 117- 2)."
