Some SUI tax agencies are already sending out 2021 SUI rates. In most cases, SurePayroll won't receive notification of these rate changes directly from the agency. Please make sure you send these notices to SurePayroll as soon as you receive them so we can make sure your 2021 SUI payments are calculated and remitted using the correct rate.

Note: Some SUI tax agencies send these notices out as late as March 2021.

The Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2021, which includes funding for another round of Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) loans among other stimulus measures, was signed into law by President Trump on Sunday, December 27, 2020. Learn what this means for the Paycheck Protection Program.

Important Note: We’re awaiting further guidance from the IRS on the third quarter 941 changes. We’ll post an update as soon as we have the information.

During the COVID-19 pandemic, The Families First Coronavirus Response Act (FFCRA) and the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act both provide refundable tax credits for qualifying wages for:

  • Employee Retention Tax Credit (CARES Act)
  • Refund of wages paid for qualified sick leave (FFCRA)
  • Refund of wages paid for qualified expanded family leave (FFCRA)

As a result, the second quarter 2020 Form 941 has been extensively revised. Two other factors that may affect this return are:

  • Filing Form(s) 7200
  • Employer Deferral of Social Security Tax
