Read Frequently Asked Questions

Course "Form 941 Compliance" has been pre-approved by SHRM as eligible for 1.5 credits and HRCI as eligible for 1.5 credits towards a participant's recertification upon full completion.

The use of this seal is not an endorsement by the HR Certification Institute of the quality of the program.

Why Should You Attend:

The quarterly Form 941 reports employee headcount, wages and tips, taxes withheld from employee pay and employer taxes, and tax liability dates that establish due dates for tax deposits. It is the basis for IRS determination of employer compliance with the requirement to withhold and deposit employee income tax and Social Security and Medicare taxes. The tax liability section and Schedule B provide the basis for IRS assessment of deposit penalties.

Form 941, and the related Form 941X used to correct a previously filed Form 941, present special compliance and reconciliation issues. Correction of prior return errors on a 941 can be challenging and subject to strict deadlines to avoid incurring penalties or interest charges.

It will cover correcting errors using Form 941-X including determining when to file, whether to file for an adjustment or a claim for refund, the certification and documentation requirements for recovering overpaid tax, and how to handle retroactive reclassification of workers from independent contractors to employees.

Topic Background:

Form 941 is the link between payroll records and the IRS tax records. It is one of the most important compliance areas in payroll. Form 941 must be prepared correctly and reconciled with the quarterly payroll records. It must also be reconciled annually with third party sick pay records and W-2 Forms. Proper administration of this vital form is critical for avoiding IRS notices and mitigating any penalties and interest that accompany them. The Schedule B is also a crucial form for many employers. Deposit liability dates must match the payroll records. These dates establish the deposit due dates and provide the basis for tax deposit compliance penalties.
