For 2021, this threshold is $2,300. Section 3121(x) of the Internal Revenue Code provides the formula for increasing the threshold. Computation Under the formula, the domestic employee coverage threshold for 2021 is equal to the 1995 amount of $1,000 multiplied by the ratio of the national average wage index for 2019 to that for 1993. If the resulting amount is not a multiple of $100, we round it to the next lower multiple of $100. Domestic Employee Coverage Threshold Amount Multiplying the 1995 domestic employee coverage threshold ($1,000) by the ratio of the national average wage index for 2019 ($54,099.99) to that for 1993 ($23,132.67) produces $2,338.68. We then round this amount to $2,300. Therefore, the domestic employee coverage threshold amount is $2,300 for 2021. Election Official and Election Worker Coverage Threshold General The minimum amount an election official and election worker must earn so the earnings are covered under Social Security or Medicare is the election official and election worker coverage threshold. For 2021, this threshold is $2,000. Section 218(c)(8)(B) of the Act provides the formula for increasing the threshold. Computation Under the formula, the election official and election worker coverage threshold for 2021 is equal to the 1999 amount of $1,000 multiplied by the ratio of the national average wage index for 2019 to that for 1997. If the amount we determine is not a multiple of $100, it we round it to the nearest multiple of $100. Election Official and Election Worker Coverage Threshold Amount Multiplying the 1999 coverage threshold amount ($1,000) by the ratio of the national average wage index for 2019 ($54,099.99) to that for 1997 ($27,426.00) produces $1,972.58. We then round this amount to $2,000. Therefore, the election official and election worker coverage threshold amount is $2,000 for 2021.
