Overview of the webinar

This course will cover payroll-related COVID-19 changes. These changes include: the ability to defer payment on employer-side Social Security taxes; a tax credit for employers who meet the requirements for the Employee Retention Credit; and a tax credit for paying mandatory sick leave under the Families First Coronavirus Response Act. In response, the IRS has released a new version of the Form 941 quarterly payroll report, to account for these deferrals and credits. The IRS has also released a new form called Form 7200 which can be used for claiming advance payments on the tax credits. We will talk about how all of these provisions and forms tie together. We will also discuss how Payroll Protection Program (PPP) loans enter into the mix on this.

Why should you attend?

Congress has passed special provisions relating to COVID-19, including the ability to defer payment on employer-side Social Security tax, a tax credit for qualifying businesses called the “Employee Retention Credit,” and a tax credit for mandatory sick leave paid under the Families First Coronavirus Response Act. In response to these provisions, the IRS has released a new version of Form 941 for quarterly payroll filings, and a new form called Form 7200 for getting refunds of the tax credits. Learn about these changes and more in this webinar.
