COBRA premium assistance payments credit

Employers, use line 12a of form 941 to report the COBRA premium assistance payments you made. Only report the premium assistance payments you made for the assistance eligible individuals who have paid their reduced premiums. This amount should be 65% of the total COBRA premiums for assistance eligible individuals without regard to the reduction. Do not include any amounts paid to you by the COBRA assistance eligible individuals. For COBRA coverage provided under a self-funded plan, COBRA premium assistance payments are treated as having been made for each assistance eligible individual who pays 35% of the COBRA premium.

Reconciling Forms 941 and Form W-3

The IRS matches amounts reported on your four quarterly Forms 941 with Form W-2 amounts totaled on your yearly Form W-3, Transmittal of Wage and Tax Statements. If the amounts do not agree, you may be contacted by the IRS or the Social Security Administration (SSA). The following amounts are reconciled.

Federal income tax withholding.

Social security wages.

Social security tips.

Medicare wages and tips.

Advance earned income credit (EIC) payments.
