Print 941 Information

Run Payroll/Print/941 Information to review information maintained by the system, to enter 941 data that the system does not maintain, such as adjustments, and to print the 941 Information report. You can use the report to fill out the 941 Form, Employer’s Quarterly Federal Tax Return, by hand.

If you have purchased and installed the Tax Form Kit, you can use this command to create a completed Form 941, the Employer’s Quarterly Federal Tax Return. The 941 Form created by the Tax Form Kit is ready to file with the IRS.

The 941 Information program is provided on 21st Century Accounting Payroll Tax Updates, so the window and the report meet current federal requirements. Press the F1 key for Help at the prompts in the window. Refer to the IRS instructions for filling out and filing this form.

You select the Payroll tax year and quarter when you enter 941 information and print the report.
