IRS Form 941 Quarter 3, Form W-4 and Form 1099-NEC in 2022
Employer's Quarterly Federal Tax Return for the third quarter is due by October 31st, 2022. Businesses use Form 941 to report income taxes and payroll taxes that they withhold from their employees’ wages. It is also used to calculate and report Social Security and Medicare taxes. Although you are free to either file it on paper or opt for the federal e-filing system.
The E-file Mandate, though, is changing for 2022. The electronic filing mandate refers to how employers file W-2s and 1099s with the IRS. Since the late 1980s the threshold has been 250 (if a business filed more than 250 forms, it was required to file electronically with the IRS). Proposed regulations call for the threshold to drop to 100 for 2022 forms filed in 2023, and to 10 for 2023 forms filed in 2024. It is critical to meet the mandate, because employers would be subject to a failure to file penalty if they file on paper when they should have filed electronically.
The IRS may impose penalties, if you fail to file Form 941. You will most likely be charged a penalty of 5% of the total tax amount due, but that's not it. Your business will continue to be charged an additional 5% every month the return has not been submitted and that continues for up to five months. Thus, it is crucial to file it on time and the reporting must be done without errors.
The IRS also released a new version of Form W-4 that dramatically has changed the way employees now fill out the form. This affects how employers calculate withholding. The W-4 topic is actually "more than it seems" as far as when employees need to fill out a new W-4, when the employer needs to ask for a new W-4, and penalties for failure to comply.

Why You Should Attend
Before changes, the Form W-4 was a critical form that all companies have to obtain from employees and has had special processing requirements. The latest Form W-4, Employee’s Withholding Certificate, radically changes the way employee paychecks are calculated. The form now includes major revisions, including several new input elements for federal income tax withholding calculations, which will require significant reprogramming of payroll systems.
This training will prepare the payroll professionals to understand the changes to the Form W-4 for the filing in 2022 and to review the recently released draft of the W-4 Form. We will also discuss the IRS specific laws around the processing of Form W-4 and how you should handle them.
