Beginning with tax year 2014 (processing year 2015) taxpayers will file 2014 Form 8922 with IRS. For tax year 2014 a paper Form 8922 is required. This form replaces the Third-Party Sick Pay Recaps that were filed on Form W-2 and Form W-3 with the Social Security Administration. The reporting of third-party sick pay recaps to the SSA ends after tax year 2013. Other reporting requirements for third party sick pay remain unchanged.
The purpose of filing Form 8922 is to reconcile employment tax returns (for example, Form 941) with Forms W-2 when third-party sick pay is paid by a party other than the employer and when the liability for Federal Insurance Contributions Act (FICA) taxes is split between the third party and the employer for which services are normally performed.
