The Internal Revenue Service and the Treasury Department announced further details of tax credits available under the American Rescue Plan to help small businesses, including providing paid leave for employees receiving COVID-19 vaccinations.

The credit is:

  • For paid sick leave related to receiving a COVID-19 vaccination
  • Paid from 4/1 – 9/30/2021
  • Up to $511 per day ($5,110)
  • Reported on Form 941 or Form 7200
