REMINDER: Paid Family and Medical Leave Contributions Due January 31, 2020

RAM members are reminded that initial contributions for the newly established MA Paid Family and Medical Leave program are due on January 31st.  Collected contributions for the first quarter of the program are to be submitted through the Department of Revenue’s MassTaxConnect portal.  Businesses will report contributions in Box 14 (Other) for Form W-2 and Box 16 (State tax withheld) for Form 1099-MISC.  The contribution line for both items should read MAPFML.

Members are urged to visit the Department of Revenue’s PFML information page for ongoing updates and guidance materials.  This includes a MassTaxConnect screenshot with further clarification on where to insert information on the W-2 and 1099-MISC, video tutorials on registering and reporting, and an extensive list of FAQs which are updated as information becomes available.
