American Rescue Plan  Family/Sick Leave  IRS 

The IRS has updated its  frequently asked questions (FAQs) regarding the paid sick and family leave tax credits under the American Rescue Plan Act of 2021. The updates clarify that eligible employers can claim the credits for providing leave to employees to accompany a family or household member or certain other individuals to obtain immunization relating to COVID-19 or to care for a family or household member or certain other individuals recovering from the immunization.

This new reason for paid sick or family leave also applies to the comparable credits for self-employed individuals.
