How to Reconcile a Pay Run with COVID-19 Credits

If you have an employee taking COVID leave, you can use credits that The Families First Corona virus Response Act, or FFCRA, is offering companies. You'll need to take additional steps to reconcile your pay run. Credits resulting from the COVID-19 Emergency Leave earnings are entered by administrators each payroll. These credits can then be applied against any Federal 941 tax liability calculated for pay dates after April 1st, 2020. 

At the moment, Zenefits does not show COVID credits on our reporting. It is important to keep track of the Total Tax Deferral amounts we display on the Approval Summary of the run before you approve the run. This amount will reduce the amount of taxes we debit for each run. 

Total Taxes - COVID Employer Tax Deferral = Total Taxes debited
