If a business’s tax return is under audit, the auditor will also look the business’s employment tax return to be sure the taxpayer is making timely federal tax deposits and is filing required payroll tax returns such as Form 940 and 941. If the auditor finds any areas of concern, he or she may refer these returns to an employment tax specialist for audit.
