The IRS has released a new form that refers specifically to COVID-19 tax relief requests. This is the Form 7004. This form will be crucial for small businesses that are seeking advance payment of employer credits. These credits are offered as a part of the Emergency Sick Leave and Extended Emergency Family and Medical Leave program created under the Families First Coronavirus Response Act.

The following are refundable tax credits that employers can request in advance using the Form 7200.

The Qualified Family Leave Credit
To be eligible for this tax credit, employers with 500 employees or less must provide their employees with the option to take time off from work when they are caring for a family member that is affected by COVID-19.

The Qualified Paid Sick Leave Credit
To be eligible for this tax credit, employers with 500 or less employees must provide up to 80 hours of paid sick leave when their employee is unable to work either because they are experiencing COVID-19 or caring for a family member that is infected and thus they are self-quarantining themselves.

The Employee Retention Credit
This tax credit offers a 50% refund on wages paid totaling $10,000, it is designed for employers that have dramatically reduced revenue due to COVID-19. The purpose of this program is to encourage employers to keep their employees on the payroll, qualified wages may not exceed 50% of $10,000 ($5,000) for any employee for all quarters. If you have paid any qualified wages between March 13, 2020 and March 31, 2020, include 50% of those wages as well as any qualified wages paid during the second quarter on line 1 of the form.

When Must The Form 7200 Be Filed?
According to the IRS, this form must be completed and filed before the end of the month following the quarter when the qualifying wages were paid out. Form 7200 can be filed more than once per quarter as needed. The information that is required in this form can be found in the payroll tax return that you pay either quarterly or annually. All of these forms can be easily filed using the TaxBandits software and include:
