Other than signing and submitting your return, this is probably the easiest portion of Form 941. At the top of Form 941, you will need to provide some basic information about yourself and your business. This will include your name, employer identification number (EIN), and your business’s name and address. You will also need to choose the quarter you are filing the return for.
Complete Form Information
Now it’s time to get into the nitty-gritty of Form 941. IRS Form 941 contains 4 sections that you will need to complete. Here’s an overview of each section:
Part One: To complete part 1, you will need to provide information about wages you’ve paid to employees and federal income tax withheld from their paychecks.
Part Two: In part 2, you will need to discuss your deposit schedule and tax liability for the quarter. You will also need to answer whether you are a semiweekly or monthly depositor.
Monthly schedule depositor – If you reported $50,000 or less in taxes during the lookback period, you’re a monthly schedule depositor.
Semiweekly schedule depositor – If you reported more than $50,000 of taxes for the lookback period, you’re a semiweekly schedule depositor.
Part Three – Part 3 is all about discussing your business. However, not the fun stuff. In part 3 you will need to report information such as whether your business is a seasonal employer or a recovery startup business. If a question in part 3 doesn’t apply to your business, you can leave it blank.
Part Four – Part 4 will ask whether or not you want to authorize a third-party designee to discuss your Form 941 with the IRS. An example of a third-party designee would be an employee or a paid tax preparer.
