Uh oh, you’re officially out of time! The 3rd quarter Form 941 deadline is today! That means it’s time to file and report the taxes withheld from your employee’s paychecks by midnight or you will have serious penalties to face.
Luckily, you don’t have to panic because you have IRS authorized ExpressTaxFilings to help you complete your form in a matter of minutes and transmit it directly to the IRS. The entire process is quick, secure, and easy. Simply follow the steps below.
How to E-File form 941 with ExpressTaxFilings?
The ExpressTaxFilings e-filing process was developed to be quick and easy. The interview style process provides a step-by-step guide for you to follow that explains what information you need to enter and where.
First, you will create your free ExpressTaxFilings account with your email address and personal password. Then you will click the orange ‘Start New Form’ button in the dashboard and select Form 941 from the list.
Next, you will enter your business information, including the name, address, EIN (Employer Identification Number), and more. All of this information will be saved in your account for next time so you won’t have to re-enter it every quarter. If applicable, this is where you will enter your signing authority and aggregate filing information as well.
Then choose your tax year and the quarter and you will also enter your employee information such as the number of employees you have, and the amount of taxes you withheld from their paychecks.
The next step involves reporting your tax liability and deposit schedule. Then you will be able to indicate if your business closed, was sold, if you’re a seasonal employer who doesn’t need to file quarterly, or if you’ve stopped paying wages.
After that, you will pay that amount of Medicare and Social Security tax you owe to the IRS by the deadline. Then we will provide you with a summary of your information so you can make sure you entered all of your information correctly.
An internal audit check will also be performed to catch any basic errors. If you need to change any of your information simply click the ‘Edit’ button.
Then when you’re ready you can e-sign your form. You can use an online signature PIN to sign your form or Form 8453-EMP. You can apply for a free online signature PIN with ExpressTaxFilings if you don’t have one, but keep in mind it takes about 45 days become active.
To e-sign, your Form 941 with Form 8453-EMP, download it, fill it out, and upload it back to your ExpressTaxFilings account. The entire process takes about a minute.
After you have e-signed your form, pay the filing fee and transmit it directly to the IRS! Then relax, because you’re done until the next quarter. Once the IRS accepts your form we will notify you via email. You can also use our print center to have us print and mail copies of your return to your recipients.
