The Form 944, Employer’s annual Tax Return, is used to report employment taxes. IRS Form 944 is specifically for small business owners to report annual federal income tax & FICA tax with the IRS. Small employers with an annual liability of $1,000 or less for Social Security, Medicare, and federal income tax have to file annual information returns instead of the quarterly form 941.
