What Is FFCRA?

On March 18, 2020, the President signed HR 6201, the Families First Coronavirus Response Act (Act or FFCRA) into law. Since then, the Department of Labor (DOL) has issued, and reissued, guidance on multiple occasions, sometimes even changing previous advice. Families First Corona Virus Response Act (FFCRA) Tax Credit Program can help you claim up to $32000/ depending upon net earnings of 2020 and 2021. The IRS determines the FFCRA Credit depending on the daily average income and the amount of self-employment work missed due to COVID-19- related issues.

The FFCRA provides that Eligible Employers providing leave under the EPSLA and the Expanded FMLA are entitled to fully refundable tax credits to cover the cost of the leave paid for these periods of time during which employees are unable to work (which for purposes of these rules, includes telework).

What Is SETC?

In response to the economic impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, the Families First Coronavirus Response Act (SETC) was signed into law by President Trump in March 2020. Initially targeted at employers with W-2 employees, the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act expanded the Supplementary Earning Tax Credit (SETC) to include freelancers, independent contractors, and gig workers.

The SETC provides federal legislation offering paid sick leave, COVID-19 testing, food assistance, and unemployment benefits. Employers receive health insurance protection for employees, while self-employed individuals can claim tax credits on their income tax returns for COVID-19-related sick leave.
