FFCRA Wage Reporting on the W-2

 

COVID-19 Codes in Box 14

The IRS requires employers to provide the amounts paid to employees as qualified sick leave wages or qualified family leave wages under the Families First Coronavirus Response Act.  To help employers meet this requirement, Zenefits will display these wages in Box 14 per the IRS recommendations for the three specific wage types:

 

  • C19 SLW511: Sick leave wages subject to the $511 per day limit because of care an employee required
  • C19 SLW200:  Sick leave wages subject to the $200 per day limit because of care an employee provided to another
  • C19 EFLW: Emergency family leave wages

The purpose of providing this information to employees is to provide self-employed individuals who also receive wages or compensation as employees with the information they need to properly claim any qualified sick leave equivalent or qualified family leave equivalent credits, for which they are eligible, when they file their personal tax returns.  Individuals who are not self-employed will not need to report this information.
