Success Starts with TaxBandits!
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!
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.

Frequently Asked Questions
What is Schedule R (Form 940)?
CPEOs and agents of home care service recipients approved by the IRS under section 3504 are required to attach Schedule R (Form 940) to Form 940, Employer’s Annual Federal Unemployment (FUTA) Tax Return. Schedule R simplifies the aggregate reporting process by allocating aggregate wages, taxes, credits, deposits, and payment amounts to be reported on Form 940.
CPEOs can file the returns listed on Form 8973, and are generally required by the IRS to file their Schedule R electronically. Section 3504 Agents can file the returns listed on their Form 2678 appointment. Aggregate filers can use their own EIN to file a single Form 940 for all of their clients via Schedule R, along with those clients’ respective FUTA wage and tax liability information.
Apart from CPEOs, Aggregate Form 940s for home care service recipients are filed by agents (approved by the IRS under section 3504 through Form 2678, unless you are a state or local government agency acting as agent).
What is the deadline for 2022 Form 940 Schedule R?
The deadline for filing Form 940 Schedule R for 2022 is January 31, 2023.
If you fully deposited all your FUTA tax when it was due you have until February 10, 2023 to file Form 940.
What are the penalties for failing to file Schedule R (Form 940)?
Generally, the CPEO is solely responsible for paying the client's employment taxes, filing returns, and making deposits and payments for the reported taxes. IRC Section 3504 Agents and their clients are both responsible for paying their employment taxes, filing returns, making deposits and payments for the reported taxes.
Late-deposit penalty amounts are determined using calendar days, starting from the due date of the liability.
