Report your employee’s income from jury duty in Box 1 “Wages, Tips, and Other Compensation” on a W-2 form. Employers must report additional income that they pay to an employee and send a Form W-2 to the worker by Jan. 31 for the previous tax year. Complete your filing duties so that all of your employees can submit Form 1040, which includes their jury duty pay, to the Internal Revenue Service. Make sure that you and all employees know what is expected of both parties from the IRS, the state, and the company.
We handle Form W-2 generation programmatically using our Software Generated Forms add-on module. Download our free 1099-etc Demo software to see how the module pairs with our base W-2/1099 Forms Filer and eliminates the need to purchase pre-printed forms.
