As the owner of a Los Angeles business that employs one or 10,000 employees you are required by law to collect, report and send the payroll and employment tax for each of them. The IRS has a specific 941 form that must be sent in every quarter and must follow a very specific schedule. The only deviation that is acceptable is if the day it is due falls on a Saturday, Sunday or holiday, if this occurs, you must have it sent in on the following business day.
What is meant by Business 941 Payroll, or Employment Tax?
While most Angelenos in Southern California know exactly what income tax is that is withheld from each of their checks, but it is not as likely that these same people would have any idea what is meant by payroll tax. However, ask any Los Angeles business owner the same question they will absolutely be able to tell you that it refers to as 941/940 Employment Payroll Tax.
They are quite aware that 941/940 Employment Payroll Tax refers to the combination of employment tax, social security tax, and Medicare Tax. These taxes are collected from each employee and they must be reported and sent to the IRS quarterly and it must adhere to a strict, specific schedule. If you make it a habit of missing deadlines for submitting the 941 payroll tax form you can be sure that the IRS will not forget and you will likely find yourself on the wrong side of its wrath.
