You have a chance to get some down-to-earth idea put into motion but in order to do so it's Special Tax Rules In Case of Sickness By RAY DE CRANE NEA Publications Some, or all, of r the wages 6r salary you received ".from your employer while you were absent from work because of sickness'-or in jury .'may'be .exempt from tax. The amount depends upon the,length of, your absence and the percentage of normal pay received.;; . i Let's consider first the income earner who in 1967 received more than 75 per cent of his regular pay (it could have been full:salary}.-. .' •••••;•,., In his case, sick pay exclusion begins after a.30-day Waiting period. After the 30-day period the sick pay exclusion is the full wage payment up to a weekly maximum of $100. For'periods of less than'a full week compute the exclusion on. this basis: If you normally'"work a five-day week the maximum daily exclusion Is $20 or actual pay, whichever it lesser; for a six-day week the lesser of $16.67 a day or actual pay. Entirely different rules apply when sick pay:is on' the basis of 75 per cent or less of Tegular pay. In such cases.the waiting period is reduced to seven calendar days. Therefore, the sick pay exclusion is on the basis of actual pay received or $75 a week; whichever is lesser. If the employe on such a reduced income basis during illness,,, rain jury, is hospitalized at least one' day his exclusion begins froni the first day of such enforced absence. After the first 30 days his exclusion goes up to the weekly maximum of $100 or actual pay, whichever is lesser. This sick pay exclusion is reported on Page 2 of Form 1040 under the heading, "Adjustments to Income." Whenever such an exclusion is claimed Form 2440, available from IRS, or some other suitable statement must -be .attached to the return. • The statement should show the reason for absence, first day^ cut your taxes byRayOeCrane away from work, date returned to work, your regular salary, salary or wages paid : during your absence and the percentage that constitutes normal pay. Remember, that in order to claim-a sick pay exclusion you must have been paid by your employer during the period of enforced absence from work and the amount so paid must have been included in your gross earnings as shown on your W-2 slip.
