Form 941/944 Employer’s Quarterly/Annual Federal Tax Return

IRS Form 941 is due to the IRS in the month after a quarter has ended. The due dates are 4/30, 7/31, 10/31 and 1/31. IRS Form 944 is due only once a year before 1/31.

Employers are required to file either four quarterly Form 941s or one Form 944 every year, but not both. Employers shall file form 941s unless they were notified by the IRS to file form 944 only.
