Learn the Line-By-Line Preparation of Form 941 and Avoid IRS Penalties
The IRS requires employers to use Form 941, “Employer’s Quarterly Federal Tax Return,” to report withholdings from employees’ paychecks, and to pay Social Security and Medicare taxes. For employers that withhold federal and FICA (social security and Medicare) taxation and pay employees, the Form 941 is a crucial document. There have been several changes to this form making it difficult for employers to understand and prepare. For example, in March 2017, the IRS issued a revenue procedure that clarifies the agency’s requirements relating to employee consent when employers claim a credit or refund on overpaid FICA taxes.
Reconciliation and completion of Form 941 and Schedule B is important for employers because violations may result in costly disputes with the IRS and result in high penalties and interests. In this session, expert speaker Dayna Reum will help you in the line-by-line preparation of Form 941 and discuss areas to look for to avoid penalties and disputes with the IRS.
