COVID sick pay, family leave, and vaccination leave tax credits available through September 2021
As we see COVID cases and hospitalization rates increase in recent weeks, we would like to remind employers in Central Iowa that COVID relief legislation includes payroll tax credits (available through September 30, 2021) to help reduce the spread of the virus:
There are employer tax credits available if you have employees that need:
- Sick leave (up to 10 days) to employees diagnosed with COVID
- Family leave to employees caring for family members impacted by COVID.
- Time-off to receive a COVID-19 vaccine, as well as time-off to recover from side-effects related to the immunization.
