Second Quarter 941 Forms Are Due Soon!

Wow-wee where did July go?!

Seems like we were just filing first quarter taxes and now it’s almost time to have second quarter 941 Forms in! So, are you ready?

About Form 941
Many of you are already very familiar with Form 941, but it’s always good to have a refresher course before diving into the form. Form 941, the Employer’s Quarterly Tax Return, reports income taxes, social security tax, and Medicare tax required to be withheld from your employee wages. It’s also used to calculate and submit the employer portion of social security and Medicare taxes.

And since Form 941 is a quarterly form, it must be submitted to the IRS the month following the end of each fiscal quarter. So with the deadline we have coming up on July 31, you’ll need to report financial details from April through June (the second quarter).

E-filing Form 941
Of course, the easiest and fastest way to complete and submit Form 941 is by e-filing. Just keep in mind you’ll need to electronically sign your form with either an Online Signature PIN (assigned by the IRS) or by completing Form 8453-EMP. And with ExpressIRSForms, completing and e-signing Form 941 couldn’t be simpler! You can even make online payments to the IRS when you e-file Form 941 through your account.

But you’d better hurry - there are officially less than two weeks left to complete and submit Form 941 for your business’s second quarter return. If you need any help getting started or have a question, don’t hesitate to reach out to us - we’re glad to help!

Happy filing, everyone!
