Frequently Asked Questions About the FFCRA/SETC Tax Credit

Who qualifies for the Self-Employed Qualified Sick & Family Leave Wage Credits?

Eligibility for the Self-Employed Qualified Sick & Family Leave Wage Credits requires meeting specific criteria. This encompasses individuals operating as self-employed, including sole proprietors, independent entrepreneurs, freelancers, gig economy participants, 1099 contractors, and owners of single-member LLCs. Additionally, candidates must have submitted a Schedule SE with their IRS Form 1040 for the tax years 2021, demonstrating positive net earnings and the contribution towards self-employment taxes on those earnings. Eligibility also depends on having been unable to work for reasons directly associated with COVID-19.

Is there a cutoff date for filing claims for the Qualified Sick & Family Paid Leave Wage Credits?

Indeed, there is a specific timeframe within which you must amend your tax returns from 2020 and/or 2021 to claim or modify your Qualified Sick & Family Paid Leave wage credits. This period extends to three years following the initial filing deadline of the respective tax return. Consequently, the final date to amend your 2020 tax return to claim these credits falls on April 15, 2024, while for the 2021 tax return, the deadline is April 15, 2025.

Does the Qualified Sick & Family Paid Leave wage credit represent a loan or grant? Do I have to repay anything?

The Qualified Sick & Family Paid Leave wage credit is neither a loan nor a grant, but rather a tax credit designed to mitigate the financial burden experienced by self-employed individuals due to COVID-19. Similar to how mandatory paid leave supports employees, this tax credit compensates for earnings lost owing to illness, caregiving responsibilities for someone with COVID-19, or other pandemic-related work disruptions, thereby easing the economic strain on affected individuals.

What time periods qualify for the Qualified Sick & Family Paid Leave wage credits?

Eligibility for Covid-related compensated leave spans distinct periods: initially, up to 60 days or 12 weeks from April 1, 2020, to March 31, 2021. Subsequently, an extended phase allows for up to 70 days or 14 weeks, starting from April 1, 2021, through to September 30, 2021.

What defines self-employment?

In the United States, the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) categorizes an individual as self-employed if they meet any of the following criteria:
They operate a trade or business as either a sole proprietor or an independent contractor.
They contribute as a partner in a partnership engaged in a trade or business.
They conduct any form of business independently, including running a part-time enterprise or working as a gig economy participant.

Am I eligible for SETC if I also receive W2 income?

Unfortunately, Gig Workers Solutions does not assist individuals who receive W2 income in applying for the SETC. However, you might still be eligible for this credit if your employer has claimed the ERTC on your behalf. For advice tailored to your unique circumstances, it’s recommended to consult with a Certified Public Accountant (CPA).
