Be a Worksheet 1 Warrior

941 Worksheet 1 was created by the IRS to help businesses calculate and COVID-19 tax credits that may be claimed throughout the quarter. While it may look a bit intimidating at first glance, it is actually a great tool to help you file your Form 941. With TaxBandits there is no need to stress over worksheet 1, you can conquer it! With TaxBandits, worksheet 1 is built into the filing flow, making the tax calculations a breeze. 

Zero to Report? Zero Stress!

Unless you are a seasonal employer, or fall into one of the other exceptions, you must file Form 941 every quarter. Even if you have no taxes to report for the quarter. To help these employers save time, our team created the Zero-filing Feature.

Simply indicate that you have no taxes to report when you begin your Form 941, and the application will take you to the end of the filing flow to review your form. That’s all there is to it!

Know where you Stand with the IRS

One of the best reasons to file your Form 941 electronically is that you will know where you stand with the IRS. When you transmit the form electronically, you will receive an instant update and continue to receive updates until the form is accepted. 

When paper filing and placing your form in the mail you won’t have this luxury. You will have no concrete way of knowing when your form arrives at the IRS and given the size of their backlog, it may be a long time before you receive any type of update.

Paper forms just can’t be processed as quickly as forms in the electronic format. Save yourself the headache this quarter!
