941 Forms are filed to report all of the following amounts: 1) Wages you have paid. 2) Tips your employees have received. 3) Federal income tax you withheld. 4) Both the employer's and the employee's share of social security and Medicare taxes. 5) Current quarter's adjustments to social security and Medicare taxes for fractions of cents, sick pay, tips, and group-term life insurance. 6) Advance earned income tax credit (EIC) payments. 7) Credit for COBRA premium assistance payments. After you file your first Form 941, you must file a return for each quarter, even if you have no taxes to report, unless you filed a final return or other certain exceptions apply.
