Self-Employed FMLA Credits

Self-employed individuals who regularly carry on a trade or business within the meaning of Section 1402 of the IRC may claim sick leave and family leave credits similar to those afforded to employers under the Act, which credits may be used to offset income taxes imposed on them by Subtitle A of the IRC. To qualify for any such credit, a self-employed individual must be in a position to qualify for, as relevant, paid sick leave under the Emergency Paid Sick Leave Act or paid family leave under the Emergency Family and Medical Leave Expansion Act, if he or she were an employee of an employer (rather than being self-employed).
