Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

The Sick and family Leave tax credit for self-employed and 1099 workers is for eligible self-employed individuals or independent contractors.

Under the FFCRA, eligible self-employed individuals or independent contractors could claim a refundable tax credit against their income tax liability for up to 100% of the qualified sick and family leave equivalent amounts, subject to certain limitations, if they were unable to work or telework due to COVID-19-related reasons.

The qualified sick leave equivalent amount was the lesser of either $511 per day or 100% of the average daily self-employment income for each day an individual was unable to work or telework because they were subject to a quarantine or isolation order, had COVID-19 symptoms and were seeking a medical diagnosis, or were caring for someone who was subject to a quarantine or isolation order or who had COVID-19 symptoms.

The qualified family leave equivalent amount was the lesser of either $200 per day or 67% of the average daily self-employment income for each day an individual was unable to work or telework because they needed to care for a child whose school or place of care was closed due to COVID-19.

To claim the tax credit, eligible self-employed individuals or independent contractors would report the qualified sick and family leave equivalent amounts on their 2019, 2020 or 2021 tax return, depending on when the leave was taken.
