Success Starts with TaxBandits!
Excellent! Completing tax filings with TaxBandits is very easy, accurate, and fast. I’ve tried other tax filing services, and TaxBandits is by far the absolute best.
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!
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!
Frequently Asked Questions on Form 940
What is Annual Federal FUTA Tax Form 940?
Form 940 is the Employer’s Annual Federal Unemployment (FUTA) Tax Return. The FUTA tax provides funds for paying unemployment compensation to workers who have lost their jobs. Only employers pay FUTA tax and it is not deducted from their employees’ wages.
Employers must pay a tax rate of 6% on the first $7000 that each employee makes. If state unemployment taxes (SUTA) can be paid on-time, the FUTA tax can be reduced to 0.6 percent.
What are the Form 940 Credit Reduction States?
A state that has not repaid money that it borrowed from the federal government to pay unemployment benefits is considered a credit reduction state.
For the tax year 2022, the Form 940 credit reduction rate for California, Connecticut, Illinois, and New York is 0.3% and for the U.S. Virgin Islands is 3.6%.
