Is there a new Form 7200? What does it have to do with your quarterly tax form?

If you're an employer who must file employment tax such as Form 941, 943, 944, or CT-1, you may also file Form 7200 to request an advance payment of the tax credit for qualified sick, family leave wages, and the ERC (employee retention credit).

Although the Form 7200 was introduced last year, in 2021, the IRS forbids filers from using its previous versions. Now we have a new version to use for quarters 3 and 4, which comes with most important changes. In this webinar, you will get instructions on how you can file 7200 and exclude the errors you make in this form with the help of your employment tax form.

We'll have a detailed discussion on ERC, the tax credit available for leave paid under the Families First Coronavirus Response Act (FFCRA), changes to the Form 941, optional payroll tax deferrals, and the interaction between the ERC, COBRA Premium Subsidy, and Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) loans. In particular, we will do a deep dive into the ERC!

With the quarter 4 deadlines for Form 941 and Form 7200 right around the corner, it's to explain to the employers how they can report both the refundable and the non-refundable portions of the employment tax credits for qualified sick and family leave wages, and integration payroll tax credits and deferral opportunities available under the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act (CARES) and FFCRA.

We will also discuss how and when you can use Form 941-X to make retroactive credit claims, along with discussing the role of Form W-2 and its relation with the recent payroll changes.
