Pursuant to the requirements of the Balanced Budget and Emergency Deficit Reduction Act of 1985, as amended, refund payments issued to corporations claiming refundable prior year minimum tax liability, are subject to sequestration. This means that refund payments processed on or after October 1, 2013 and on or before September 30, 2014 will be reduced by the fiscal year 2014 sequestration rate of 7.2 percent, irrespective of when the original or amended tax return was received by the Service. The sequestration reduction rate will be applied unless and until a law is enacted that cancels or otherwise impacts the sequester, at which time the sequestration reduction rate is subject to change.
A corporation that can claim an additional first-year depreciation deduction under section 168(k) can choose instead to accelerate the use of its prior year minimum tax credits, treating the accelerated credits as refundable credits. Corporations making this section 168(k)(4) election and claiming a refund of prior year minimum tax credits should complete Form 8827. These corporations will be notified that a portion of their requested refund was subject to the sequester reduction.
Corporations making the section 168(k)(4) election but not claiming a refund of prior year minimum tax credits are not subject to this reduction.
Do you think that those date would apply? ..."refund payments processed on or after October 1, 2013 and on or before September 30, 2014 "

Sorry if there was a misunderstanding but I asked How do you qualify for sequestration
Do you mean, relative to your employment?
Sequestration can mean a LOT of things in different venues .. are you asking about Federal Government worker furloughs?
Also this may help:
While on furlough, Federal employees may become eligible for unemployment benefitsunder the Unemployment Compensation for Federal Employees (UCFE) program.UCFE is paid by the states under the same terms and conditions as regular stateunemployment compensation (UC). You will need to contact the state of your last dutystation to file an UCFE claim. To qualify for benefits, you must have earned sufficientwages during the prior 12–18 months, as determined under the state UC law. The statewill advise you of whether or not you are eligible for benefits.Be PreparedIt is important to have certain key documents ready when you file your claim. States maytake claims over the Internet, telephone, or in-person. Follow instructions provided onthe state’s Web site. Information on where and how to file can be found on the U.SDepartment of Labor Web site at www.dol.gov.You will need to know your department or agency’s correct name and payroll address,and, if available, the agency’s Federal Identification Code. Documents that have thisinformation and will help you to correctly file your UCFE claim include:• Standard Form 8 (SF-8)• Standard Form 50 (SF-50)• Earnings and Leave Statement• W-2 FormWorkers who are otherwise eligible for benefits must first serve a one-week waitingperiod in most states. You will have to check with the state in which you file your claimfor specific information. Generally, this means that you will not be paid for your firstweek of unemployment.
