How to generate Form 7202 in ProConnect Tax

For tax year 2020, self-employed individuals may be able to claim credits for sick leave and family leave on Form 7202. These credits can be claimed if your client couldn’t work due to COVID-19 or had to take care of family members due to the coronavirus. The total credits calculated on Form 7202 will flow to Form 1040, Schedule 3, line 12b.

Before you start:

  • Missed work days must have occurred between April 1, 2020 and December 31, 2020.
  • Average daily self-employment income is calculated as net earnings from self-employment / 260 days.
  • If your client’s 2019 net self-employment earnings were greater than in 2020, you may elect to use the 2019 amount to calculate these credits.
  • Form 7202 isn’t supported by the IRS as an e-file form. It should be attached as a PDF for e-filing.

To complete Form 7202

Enter your client’s self-employment earnings (Sch. C, Sch. F, or partnership K-1) as you normally would. Then, on the left-side menu, select Credits, and click on Credit for Sick Leave and Family Leave for SE (7202). Follow the instructions below to complete the applicable inputs and ensure this form is included as a PDF when you e-file.

Credit for Sick Leave

A maximum of 10 days will be considered for calculating this credit. Days your client was unable to work due to coronavirus care for themselves are used first, since they qualify for a higher daily credit amount.

  • For yourself: Enter the days your client was unable to work due to government quarantine order; or advised by health provider to self-quarantine due to COVID-19 concerns; or experiencing symptoms of COVID-19 and seeking medical diagnosis. This number will be multiplied by the lesser of $511 or 100% of average daily self-employment income of this individual.
  • For others: Enter the days your client was unable to work due to caring for another individual subject to a government quarantine order or advised by a health provider to self-quarantine; or was caring for their child because school or childcare was closed due to COVID-19 precautions. This number will be multiplied by the lesser of $200 or 67% of average daily self-employment income of this individual.

Qualified Sick Leave Amount(s) Received From Employer

Any sick leave wages reported on Form W-2, box 14 will automatically reduce the credit by the appropriate amount. If your client received a separate statement from their employer reporting sick leave wages paid that were not included in Form W-2, box 14, enter those amounts here.

Credit for Family Leave

A maximum of 50 days will be considered for calculating this credit. For details on who qualifies as a son or daughter, click here.
