There’s a flurry of activity going on this time of year, especially when it comes to impending deadlines. It’s easy for your year-end tax deadlines to get buried in the last-minute gift shuffle, and even easier for your 4th quarter 941 deadline to get lost among the additional year-end due dates. So, speaking of last-minute gifts, we have one for you–– TaxBandits has just opened our 4th quarter 941 filing period!
