In January 2021, the IRS quietly announced a major change to employer W-2 reporting related to the Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2021 (P.L. 116-260). A FAQ explained that employers must report the total FFCRA sick and family leave wages paid in both 2020 and 2021 on the 2021 W-2. The Form W-2 has never included information from the immediately preceding year, plus the year before that. Data would not be available for many employees (such as job changers). NPRC wrote to the IRS to suggest that they instead refer taxpayers to their 2020 W-2 or tax return if needed. The IRS acknowledged the NPRC letter on a payroll industry call and subsequently modified the FAQ accordingly.
