Instructions for Form 941-X:

10. Qualified Family Leave Wages

Qualified family leave wages paid with respect to leave taken after March 31, 2020, and before April 1, 2021, aren’t subject to the employer share of social security tax; therefore, the tax rate on these wages is 6.2% (0.062). For more information about qualified family leave wages, see Definition of qualified sick and family leave wages for leave taken after March 31, 2020, and before April 1, 2021, later, and go to IRS.gov/PLC. If you’re correcting the qualified family leave wages you reported on Form 941, line 5a(ii), column 1, enter the total corrected amount in column 1. In column 2, enter the amount you originally reported or as previously corrected. In column 3, enter the difference between columns 1 and 2.

Multiply the amount in column 3 by 0.062 and enter that result in column 4.

Note. If you erroneously reported qualified family leave wages for leave taken after March 31, 2020, and before April 1, 2021, on Form 941, line 5a, instead of on line 5a(ii), you’ll need to make a correction on Form 941-X, lines 8 and 10, and enter the properly calculated amount in column 4 for each line. 

Example – Qualified family leave wages decreased. You paid $1,000 of qualified family leave wages to only one of your employees in the second quarter of 2020. In March 2022, you discovered that you erroneously reported $3,000 of qualified family leave wages on Form 941 for the second quarter. To correct the error, figure the difference on Form 941‐X as shown.
