The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) has updated its instructions for Form 941, Employer’s QUARTERLY Federal Tax Return. Using the new guidance, employers are now instructed to report on line 12a “65% of the COBRA premiums for assistance eligible individuals” (AEIs). Previously, employers were instructed to report “COBRA assistance payments [they] made.” Also, the IRS clarified that when entering the number of AEIs provided COBRA premium assistance, reach AEI who paid a premium should count as one individual even if the premium was for a policy that covered more than one AEI. Contact Vision Payroll if you have any questions on the revised Form 941 reporting instructions.
