DESCRIPTION



Form 941 is the link between your payroll records and the IRS tax records. Proper administration of this vital form is critical if you want to avoid IRS Notices and the penalties and interest that accompany them.  The Schedule B is also a crucial form for many employers.  The IRS demands that the Form 941 and the Schedule B match to the penny…every single time…without fail!

It has always been a requirement that the Forms 941 be reconciled with the Forms W-2 prior to submitting each form. If the employer fails in this reconciliation, the IRS and Social Security Administration can both assess penalties! This reconciliation has become even more critical these past few years.
