IRS Form 940 is used for annual reporting of federal unemployment taxes. Every employer must report and pay unemployment taxes by setting aside an amount and reporting it in Form 940. Since there have been updates to the Form and various states have differing positions on unemployment benefits, it’s important for payroll, HR, finance, accounting and tax professionals to stay updated with the changes.

Some employers may unwillingly withhold payment of Federal Unemployment Tax Act (FUTA) and State Unemployment Tax Authority (SUTA) taxes due to cash crunch but the penalties and punishment for willful evasion of unemployment tax can invite crippling fines or can even land them in jail.

This course by payroll expert, Dayna J. Reum, CPP, FPC, will provide you understanding on type of employers and earnings that are subject to unemployment taxes, as well as review your FUTA tax liabilities for 2019. You will learn how to properly fill and report the IRS Form 940 as per federal or state laws.

Dayna will also discuss the updates that have occurred on the Form 940 and how to avoid common mistakes. Plus, she will discuss the status of the state unemployment system and how it will affect your job in the coming years.
