How does the Deferral of Self Employment Tax Get Paid Back

Level 2

For clients that elected to defer the self employment tax on the 2020 Form 1040, is the repayment going to be part of the 2021 Form 1040 or are they paying it back outside of filing taxes?  What is the process?

Its due by 12.31.21 and 12 31 22 so no, it wont go on the 2021 or 2022 return.    I havent seen any guidance on how this gets paid back, Im guessing the IRS will send some kind of voucher at some point, ultimately the taxpayer will be responsible to make sure th payment reaches the IRS, but Ive got to guess they will send something at some point.

Another thing to note if the taxpayer has a refund - IRS does not allow the deferral.

The provision for employers will be that they get billed for it; this provision for SE likely means they also will get billed for it.
