The American Rescue Plan Act issues some guidelines to offer tax credits for employers, who provide voluntary Emergency Paid Leave. The ARPA extends the availability of the tax credits to those employers who qualify and voluntarily provide employees with EPSL and/or EFML through September 30, 2021. It will enable employers to receive tax credits for these benefits.
With IRS Form 941 and 941-X having their deadlines right around the corner, it is high time to learn that they are the way to collect the tax credits. Many employers now look forward to accurately calculating these tax credits to ensure they receive the tax credit amount, but how should they do it?
Some employers are already familiar with the form 941 but not all are able to complete it with confidence on all steps. Considering the fact that there have been many reported errors, it is an additional concern to complete the 941-X corrections appropriately to ensure compliance and avoid fines, penalties, and criminal sanctions.
Join Compliancevent to learn how to correctly fill the IRS Form 941 as well as the requirements you need to meet to eliminate previous form errors through the Form 941-X. Our certified expert will provide a line-by-line description as recommended by the IRS.
What You Will Learn
Employers need to have proper knowledge before they are able to fill any IRS form. With Form 941 Quarter 2 being a hot topic these days, you need to ensure a correct approach to file it. However, for those having errors in the previous 941 filings, it is important to know how the Form 941-X can help you correct them.
The best compliance practice is for employers to learn how to mitigate the processes that impact their company. From payroll employees to payroll providers, it is critical that employers use all available resources to make sure they follow all the necessary protocols to complete these IRS forms.
This webinar will provide employers and payroll professionals an insight into how to complete the forms to ensure you maximize the tax credits offered by the ARPA and give the employees transparency and confidence.
