2021 – 07/20 In a “COVID Tax Tip,” the IRS provides advice on making payments of deferred employer Social Security taxes reported by third-party payers. Under the CARES Act, employers could defer payment of their share of Social Security taxes from March 27, 2020, through Dec. 31, 2020. Employers must pay 50% of the deferred taxes by Dec. 31, 2021, and the rest by Dec. 31, 2022.

The IRS notes that employers are liable for paying the deferred taxes even if they used a third-party payer to report taxes during the deferral period. To read the Tax Tip:
