Form 941 is a simple procedure with a lot of weight, and for many, this is an easy and routine process. For some transitioning small businesses, however, Form 941 represents a massive shift. Employers use the form to report income taxes, social security tax, or Medicare tax withheld from employee paychecks. The form is also used to pay the employer’s portion of FICA tax, which include both social security and Medicare. In all situations, Form 941 is used solely to file taxes from W-2 employees—not 1099 contractors.
If you own a recently started small business, you may have relied on contract work to build your foundation. Getting ready to hire your first full-time employee includes more than payroll calculations and benefits estimations; it comes with a new slew of tax and wage forms. Form 941 is the first of many new forms you’ll need to encounter. Similarly, small businesses expanding to one to several employees will need to establish a system to handle the new tax and wage forms you’ll need to prepare. For many, this means investing in 941 (filing) software.
Making the Switch to 941 Software
Expanding your Form 941 usage is illustrative of larger shifts within a small business. Maybe you’re making the switch from contract work to full-time employees. Perhaps you’re simply adding more members to your team. No matter the case, Form 941 can be a massive pain to complete. Calculating, withholding, reporting, and depositing employment taxes can be a bookkeeping disaster. If you spend much of your time running the business, you likely won’t have any leftover energy to complete and maintain these forms. If you’re filing more 941 forms than usual, a 941 software is likely the best strategy to avoid a bookkeeping disaster.
