The IRS Issues the Most Recent Update to Form 941

On June 24, 2021, the Internal Revenue Service issued the most recent update to Form 941, the Employer’s Quarterly Federal Tax Return. The form has several new lines added to obtain credits for the COBRA subsidies offered under the American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA). Employers should be using this new revision for filings in the second quarter, due by August 2, 2021.

Additionally, some revisions have been made to align Form 941 with the extension and amendments made to the Emergency Paid Family Sick Leave and Extended FMLA provisions included in ARPA. Employers should discard any unused Form 941 with revision dates earlier than June 2021.
