What are the IRS penalties For Filing Form 941 Late?

For every month that your business is late filing Form 941 to the IRS, you will incur a penalty totaling 5% of your balance due to the IRS. You will continue to incur this penalty every month for up to 5 months or 25% of your total balance due. 

After this point if your business has still failed to file you will be charged .5% of the tax payment owed to the IRS. This will increase to 1% of your total balance ten days after you receive a notice of levy from the IRS.
