Use this procedure when you have submitted your agency’s Internal Revenue Service (IRS) Form 941 Employer’s QUARTERLY Federal Tax Return for a past quarter and changes or retro activity has occurred that would generate a correction document.
A correction or retro activity has been made to the agency’s Form 941 for a past quarter.
The agency’s Form 941 has been filed with the IRS and the generation date has been entered into the Tax Reporter.
The Form 941-X in HRMS is designed to capture transactions/manual adjustments that were entered after the Form 941 Generation Date has been entered for that quarter. It is critical to the 941-X process that the Form 941 generation date was entered at the same time the production Form 941 quarterly reports were executed and mailed/filed. If this is not done the Form 941-X may be incorrect. If the agency did not enter the Form 941 generation date in a timely manner they may need to do the 941-X Form manually rather than in HRMS.
