  • No. Due to the confidential nature of the information we cannot provide figures over the telephone.
  • For tax reporting purposes, wages are reported when they are paid, rather than when they are earned. Wages earned in December 2020 but paid in January 2021 will be reported on the W‐2 for 2021.
  • CDCN cannot tell you how many exemptions to claim. You may want to consult a tax professional to determine the filing status and exemptions that are best for you.
  • The amount of taxes withheld from your checks depends on several factors, such as gross pay, filing status (married or single), number of allowances claimed and types of deductions. If you believe the amount of taxes withheld from your checks is not correct, you may want to contact a professional tax advisor to determine what filing status is best for you. Everyone’s situation is different, and we cannot provide advice about your tax filing status. If you need to change your filing status for next year, please submit a new W‐4 to CDCN.
  • If the employee received a blank W‐2, the enrollment documents that you completed indicated that you qualified for the Difficulty of Care tax exemption. IRS Section 131 Notice 2014‐7 (Difficulty of Care) provides that certain Medicaid waiver payments are excludable from federal and state income tax.
  • If an employee qualifies for this exemption, no wages are reported in Box 1 of the W‐2 and Federal and State taxes are not withheld. If you would like to learn more about the 2014-7 exemption, please visit the IRS website at: https://www.irs.gov/individuals/certain-medicaid-waiver-payments-may-be-excludable-from-income.
  • An employee’s earnings can be exempt from taxes based on their familial relationship with their employer (for example, being a Spouse, Parent, or a Child under 21). At the time of hire the employee and employer submitted a relationship determination form to CDCN that identified relationships that qualify for exemptions. Relationship exemptions must be taken, they cannot be waived.
  • No, all caregivers who have claimed exempt on their State and/or Federal tax withholding forms in 2021 will need to re‐submit a new W‐4 in 2022 claiming tax exempt.
  • Your 2019 W-2 from CDVA is posted on the DirectMyCare web portal. CDVA does not have W- 2s prior to 2019 because we didn’t provide service at that time in Virginia. To access a copy of your W-2 from 2020 or 2021, please register with ADP.com.
  • You received multiple W‐2s because the Fiscal Agent name changed and/or you worked for multiple employers in 2021.
  • The Fiscal Agent’s name and Employer’s name are identified in box C of the 2021 W‐2.
  • The following are examples of Fiscal Agent names and a sample Employer name listed in Box C of the 2021 W‐2s received from CDCN:
    • Consumer Direct Fiscal Vendor Agent for Virginia as Fiscal Agent for John Doe
    • Consumer Direct for Virginia Premier LLC as Fiscal Agent for John Doe
    • Consumer Direct for Virginia DMAS LLC as Fiscal Agent for John Doe
    • Consumer Direct for Virginia AETNA LLC as Fiscal Agent for John Doe
  • The W‐2s you received are NOT duplicates.
  • To correctly report your wages and tax withholdings,
    • Add the total of wages and the total of withholdings using all W‐2s received from CDCN
  • If you are using tax preparation software like TurboTax, enter each W‐2 separately and the software will automatically total the amounts

Consumer Direct Care Network are not tax consultants and cannot provide tax advice. We recommend you contact a tax accountant or the IRS at www.irs.gov or by calling 800‐829‐4933.

Those three items in Box 13 on your W-2 were checked in error. They do not apply to your situation. When entering your W-2 information for your Form 1040, US Individual Tax Return, please do not check the statutory employee box, the retirement box and the third-party sick pay box in Box 13.

The reason they don’t apply is as follows:

  • A statutory employee is someone who is treated like an employee but didn’t have any taxes withheld from their paycheck (this occurs frequently with employees who are 100% commission). This does not apply to you and the box should not have been checked.
  • Having the “Retirement Plan” box checked means you had access to a retirement plan such as 401k at work. There was no retirement plan available to you from Consumer Direct Care Network Virginia; therefore, this box should not have been checked.
  • Third-party sick pay means that you received payments for sick time from a company other than the one that employed you, such as an insurance company. This does not apply to you and the box should not have been checked.

No, please do not check any of the boxes in Box 13 while entering in your W-2. Then there will be absolutely no issues.

In 2022, eligible Attendants received a COVID Support payment, totaling $1000 before taxes. This payment was taxed at a supplemental rate, which will show on your W-2 as taxable income for 2022.
