The Smart Choice for Filing 94x Forms
I'm so excited! I used another software for years just to process 1 paycheck monthly submit my monthly tax deposits, 4 Quarterly 941's 1 annual 940 Form. They charged me $39/month (no physical check - just the bookkeeping for it, I personally transferred the money myself from business to personal checking each month). That service cost $468/year - quitting them using TaxBandits for those 4 Quarterly 1 Annual 940 Reports will cost me approximately $25 annually - a SAVINGS of $443.00!! YAHOO!!! THANKS!

So easy and convenient! I struggled for years preparing the 941 and 940 returns and getting to the post office in time. The fee to file with TaxBandits is less than the certified mail with a return receipt and the forms always come out very professional!
- Kim L - New Jersey
Why was I paying $165 to a CPA to type in Zero, email to me, I print it, Sign it, Copy it, load in an envelope, add an address & a stamp it, walk it to a mailbox to postmark on the last day of the month? TaxBandits preps, I e-sign, they e-file in seconds for $5 and all done with ease during the middle of the month. Holy Cow!
