1. About the Employer's Annual Federal Tax Return for Agricultural Employees

IRS Form 943, (Employer's Annual Federal Tax Return for Agricultural Employees) is designed for employers and is used to report employment taxes for wages paid to agricultural workers. Form 943 reports taxes such as federal income tax, Social Security tax, and Medicare tax.

Form 943 Requirements

As employers offering wages to agricultural employees, you must file Form 943 if you withheld taxes from one or more farm workers’ wages.

Employers must withhold taxes from employees’ wages if one of the following is met:

  • You pay an employee cash wages of $150 or more in a year for farmwork (count all wages paid on a time, piecework, or other basis). The $150 test applies separately to each farmworker that you employ. If you employ a family of workers, each member is treated separately. Don't count wages paid by other employers.
  • The total (cash and noncash) wages that you pay to all farmworkers is $2,500 or more.

Note: If the $2,500-or-more test for the group isn't met, the $150-or-more test for an individual still applies. Similarly, if the $150-or-more test is not met for any individual, the $2,500-or-more test for the group still applies.
