Here’s why employers and business owners are choosing to e-file Form 941 for 2020.
As a business owner, you’ve had to decide to do a lot of things electronically this year. We’ve learned that some meetings were always meant to be emails and office parties can get a little weird over zoom.
Since we’re getting closer to the Form 941 deadline, and it’s time to plan your filing process. As you think about the safety of your business and your employees, IRS requirements are one thing that is always better to take care of online. Here are the top 5 reasons employers choose to e-file Form 941.
1-The IRS Recommends E-filing
The number one reason to e-file Form 941 is that the IRS recommends it. E-filing makes processing your forms more convenient for the IRS, which means a quicker turnaround and less wait time for your business.
E-filing is the fastest choice when it comes to filing Form 941, but recently, with social distancing and COVID-19 precautions in place, it’s also safer for IRS employees. Skip the paper form backup line and eliminate mailing lag times when you e-file Form 941.
