On 7th September, the Treasury Department and the IRS issued Notice 2021-53 for Employers to guide them report on Form W-2 the amount of qualified sick and family leave wages paid to employees for leave taken in 2021.

The update provides guidance under recent legislation, including: the Families First Coronavirus Response Act (FFCRA), as amended by the COVID-Related Tax Relief Act of 2020, and the American Rescue Plan Act of 2021.

So the September guidance requires the Employers to report these amounts to employees either on Form W-2, Box 14, or in a separate statement provided with the Form W-2.

It is to provide employers with model language to use as part of the Instructions for Employee for the Form W-2 or on the separate statement provided with the Form W-2.

The wage amount that the notice requires employers to report on Form W-2 will provide employees who are also self-employed with the information necessary to determine the amount of any sick and family leave equivalent credits they may claim in their self-employed capacities.

Now, it is important to know the IRS' take before we discuss the approach for ERC.
