Hi, my name is Miranda Chook, a CPA. IRS form 941, Employer's Quarterly FederalTax Return, is for reporting and depositing amounts that employers are withholding from their employees wages. These withholdings represent federal taxes, Medicare, and social security, as well as the employer's share of Medicare and social security. The form asks for certain information such as the amount of wages paid, amount of tips, as well as any adjustments to those numbers, and it also requires that you report the amount of wages that were used for the different calculations. There's, of course, the total wages paid, but there's also a separate amount for wages used to calculate the social security and Medicare taxes. For more information consult the instructions for form 941.
