Questions Remain Following IRS Guidance on Payroll Tax Deferral

Earlier this month President Trump issued a memorandum directing Treasury Secretary Mnuchin to allow for the deferral of the withholding and remittance of the employee portion of federal payroll taxes from September 1, 2020 through December 31, 2020 for workers earning less than $4,000 bi-weekly. With the memorandum taking effect on September 1 and no guidance from the U.S. Department of Treasury, employers and payroll processers were left asking questions.


NEW DOL GUIDANCE ON SCHOOL REOPENING AND FFCRA

Just in time for back-to-school, the U.S. Department of Labor (DOL) published responses to three new frequently asked questions regarding paid leave under the Families First Coronavirus Response Act (FFCRA) for the reopening of schools.  (Note: The DOL has not yet addressed the New York federal judge's ruling earlier this month which invalidated several provisions of the FFCRA, which we blogged about here.)  The DOL also issued a letter providing guidance to states on Pandemic Unemployment Assistance (PUA) benefits available for parents unable to work due to remote learning.
