  • Is anyone else questioning whether or not the Product Update in regards to the tax credits is accurate? The numerous documentation I have read indicates that employers can continue the tax credits if continuing with the FFCRA COVID earnings. This would mean that the Employer portion of SS is not paid. I believe this contradicts what the Q1 Product Update has Sage users doing. 

  • Based on the American Rescue Plan Act, qualified paid sick leave and family leave wages are now subject to the employer share of Social Security Tax effective starting April 1st, 2021. Employers will receive a tax credit for the Social Security Tax but we are still waiting IRS for further instruction. Once we have more information from IRS, we will make the change in Payroll and Aatrix 941 form accordingly.

  • I have setup the CVID Social Security local tax codes per the Q1 guidelines and noticed that the EE and ER portions are not being included in the weekly Fed 941 deposits.  I know we do not need to pay the ER portion, but aren't we still required to remit the EE portion of the CVIDSS?  Is there a form we can pay this on?

  • Did you assign CVIDSS into the Emergency Paid Sick Leave Earnings? You also need to map this earning code to Report As "Form 941-Emergency Paid Sick Leave".
