Line 5a (i) qualified sick leave wages not showing on 941

Line 5a (i) qualified sick leave wages not showing on 941


I found out the accounts were setup incorrectly because it was done before 4/23 according to these instructions.


I have made all the changes in the instructions above.  I checked the 941 mapping from these instructions: 


Qualified Sick Leave Wages are the sum of the new wage types with the National Paid Sick Leave - EMP and National Sick Leave- Family (Up to the annual Social Security wage Limit for each employee).

Qualified Sick Leave Wages are subject only to the employee portion of Social Security.

Online Payroll

  1. Select Reports, then search for the Payroll Tax Liability report.
  2. Next to Date Range select a quarter, then select Run Report.
  3. Under Federal 941/944 section view the wage totals for each of the new wage types indicated above.
  4. The result in the Tax Amount column for: National Paid Sick Leave:Employee and National Paid Sick Leave:Family should match in 5a(i) Column 1.

Nothing shows up for National Paid Sick Leave Emp.  


I don't know how to fix this, please help.

Hi jennrobe.

Because you've already explored and exhausted the set up article you've listed in your post, my suggestion to you would be to reach out to support as they have the tolls at their disposal to dive into your account and see what line 5a(i) isn't calculating correctly, they will also be able to screen share with you if necessary.
