The IRS has made a change that should make it a little easier on small employers.
Beginning Jan. 1, 2006 , certain employment tax filers will be able to file the new Form 944 (Employer’s Annual Federal Tax Return) once a year rather than filing Form 941 (Employer’s Quarterly Federal Tax Return) four times a year.
The new Form 944 will reduce burden on eligible small employers who file quarterly returns with little or no employment tax due. Most employers who file Form 944 will be able to make a single payment with their annual return.
So what qualifies as “little or no employment tax”? Less than $1,000 annual estimated total.
