2017 941 - FAQ

How much would an accountant charge me for filling out a Quarterly Federal Tax Return (941) in Texas?

For full service payroll I charge $100 per month for up to 5 employees.  That includes filing the federal and state quarterly returns and year end W2's.If you just need the 941 completed and you have all of your payroll records in order, then the fee would be $50 to prepare the form for you.  Note that you also need to file a quarterly return with TWC if you have Texas employees.

How long does it take the IRS to accept or reject an IRS Form 941 return?

If you e-file, you should get your e-file acknowledgement back within the hour. Your software provider should provide you with your ack code, which they receive from the IRS.The IRS servers are lightning fast now after they upgraded them a few years ago after the Russians hacked into them back in 2015. (IRS believes Russians are behind tax return data breach - CNNPolitics). No more waiting 24 -48 hours for an ack code, even though they still tell you officially that’s how long it will take.If you paper file, the whole process slows down to a crawl, and if you make a mistake, the interest and penalties add up before you even know there’s a problem.

How do I submit my 941 payment to the IRS?

Officially, the IRS only takes electronic payments. If you do your own payroll, you should sign up for EFTPS (Electronic Federal Tax Payment System). You can enroll in EFTPS online here: Welcome to EFTPS onlineYou can also use a payroll service. Certain large payroll services are authorized to remit payments directly to the IRS on your behalf. So, if you use one of them, you don’t actually need to sign up for EFTPS. But, you may want to anyway just in case you need to remit a payment on your own.There are also small bookkeeping, tax, and accounting firms that will prepare these forms for you and submit the payments using your EFTPS account.[But if] your total taxes after adjustments and credits (Form 941, line 12) for either the current quarter or the preceding quarter are less than $2,500, you didn't incur a $100,000 next-day deposit obligation during the current quarter, and you're paying in full with a timely filed return,and a bunch of other convoluted rules from IRS publication 15 apply to you, then you can make a payment check-by-mail with form 941 using the voucher (payment coupon) on the last page. https://www.irs.gov/pub/irs-pdf/... If you submit a payment by check and do not meet the Pub 15 requirements, then you will be subject to penalties.But, it’s really much easier and far less error prone to either sign up for EFTPS or use a payroll service provider than to try and fill out the paper forms manually yourself. You may find that one error is more expensive than the annual cost of such a service.

How can I fill out an IRS form 8379?

Form 8379, the Injured Spouse declaration, is used to ensure that a spouse’s share of a refund from a joint tax return is not used by the IRS as an offset to pay a tax obligation of the other spouse.Before you file this, make sure that you know the difference between this and the Innocent Spouse declaration, Form 8857. You use Form 8379 when your spouse owes money for a legally enforeceable tax debt (such as a student loan which is in default) for which you are not jointly liable. You use Form 8857 when you want to be released from tax liability for an understatement of tax that resulted from actions taken by your spouse of which you had no knowledge, and had no reason to know.As the other answers have specified, you follow the Instructions for Form 8379 (11/2016) on the IRS Web site to actually fill it out.

If the IRS knows how much money we owe, why do we need to fill out returns?

Because the IRS doesn't know how much money you owe. They know approximately what you made, and they know a little bit about some of your deductions, but they don't know whether and to what extent you are entitled to additional deductions or credits, or whether and to what extent you earned money from transactions not reported to the IRS. Even on the transactions that were reported to the IRS, the IRS doesn't always know how much of that income is actually taxable - or at what rate.

Which IRS forms do US expats need to fill out?

That would depend on their personal situation, but should they actually have a full financial life in another country including investments, pensions, mortgages, insurance policies, a small business, multiple bank accounts…The reporting alone can be bankrupting, and that is before you get on to actual taxes that are punitive toward foreign finances owned by a US citizen and god help you if you make mistake because penalties appear designed to bankrupt you.US citizens globally are renouncing citizenship for good reason.This is extracted from a letter sent by the James Bopp law firm to Chairman Mark Meadows of the subcommittee of government operations regarding the difficulty faced by US citizens who try to live else where.“ FATCA is forcing Americans abroad into a set of circumstances where they must renounce their U.S. citizenship to survive.For example, suppose you have a married couple living in Washington DC. One works as a lobbyist for an NGO and has a defined benefits pensions. The other is self employed in a lobby firm, working under an LLC. According to the IRS filing requirements, it would take about 15 hours and $280 to complete their yearly filings. Should they under report income, any penalties would be a percentage of their unreported tax burden. The worst case is a 20% civil fraud penalty.Compare the same couple with one different fact. They moved to Australia because the NGO reassigned the wife to Sydney. The husband, likewise, moves his business overseas. They open a bank account, contribute to the mandatory Australian retirement fund, purchase a house with a mortgage and get a life insurance policy on both of them.These are now their new filing requirements:• Form 8938• Form 3520-A• Form 3520• Form 5471 (to be filed by the husbands new Australian corporation where he is self employed)• Form 720 Excise Tax.• FinCEN Form 114The burden that was 15 hours now goes up to• 57.2 hours for Form 720,• 54.20 hours for Form 3520,• 61.22 Hours for Form 3520-A.• 50 hours estimate for Form 5471For a total of 226.99 hours (according to the IRS’s own time estimates) not including time to file the FBAR.The penalties for innocent misfiling or non filings for the above foreign reporting forms for the couple are up to $50,000, per year. It is likely that the foreign income exclusion and foreign tax credit will negate any actual tax due to the IRS. So each year, there is a lurking $50,000 penalty for getting something technically wrong on a form, yet there would be no additional tax due to the US treasury.”
