TaxBandits Keeps 941 Updated
As you may know, Form 941 has continued to undergo changes throughout the COVID-19 pandemic as legislation like the CARES Act was introduced to provide tax relief. The TaxBandits team is here to help you understand any new changes to the form from quarter to quarter.
The 941 Worksheet 1 is a helpful tool that the IRS created to help employers determine the COVID-19 tax credits for which they are eligible. This worksheet is built-in to the TaxBandits filing flow, making it easier and quicker to make your tax credit calculations.
TaxBandits Offers Zero Filing
Not all employers have made payments to their employees during the first quarter of 2020, yet they are still required to file Form 941. For these clients, the TaxBandits team created the Zero Filing Feature. This allows clients to indicate that they made no payments to employees and skip through the Form 941, only completing the needed information. This makes for quick and error-free filing.
TaxBandits Enables you to Pay the Balance Due
Making your payment to the IRS is hasslefree with TaxBandits. You can choose to make a payment to the IRS using Electronic Funds Withdrawal (EFW), after transmitting the return, the IRS will move forward withdrawing the payment. You can also use your Electronic Federal Tax Payment System (EFTPS) account. If you opt to make a payment by check or money order, a Form 941-V payment voucher will be auto-generated. You can then send your payment at your own convenience.
TaxBandits Supports Schedule B
All semi-weekly depositors are required to file 941 Schedule B and attach this to their Form 941. TaxBandits builds the Schedule B into the e-filing process and clients who are required to file this form can complete it while filing Form 941.
