Tax Dictionary – Employment Tax Returns

Employers are required to report the amounts they withhold from an employee’s pay check and the employer portion of Social Security/Medicare on the quarterly Form 941 or the annual Form 944. The quarterly Form 940 shows the Federal Unemployment taxes which are the sole responsibility of the employer. These returns reflect the total amount of taxes owed and then reconcile the taxes owed with the business’ federal tax deposits.
