Form 941 Quarterly Federal Tax Filing

Our business files form 941 with a B Schedule quarterly. For this past quarter: April - June 2020, line 5a (Taxable social security wages) did not pre-fill. Usually this amount is the same as line 2 (wages, tips, etc.) for us. Therefore, this form is saying we overpaid for the quarter and should get a refund instead of showing we did make all of our payments during the quarter (which we did). Is there a reason this field did not pull across this quarter? Any information would be much appreciated.

Yes, the issue is that the 941 form requires a QB program patch/update, but nowhere is that mentioned in the payroll updates nor are you notified when you run the form that the data sent from QB to the form is in an old style that is no longer sufficient for the form.

 

Both of these things, to tell customers to update QuickBooks, and to warn them if they don't, could have been done by Intuit - the mechanisms exist and they've done it before - but they didn't this time.

 

To make the form work, patch QuickBooks to the latest release.

What to you mean by patching QB to the latest release, I am having the same problem.  Do you mean running a payroll update or when it asks about updating QB when you open it.  I have several companies that are having the same problem.

 

Thanks in advance for help
