Gain a better understanding of what does and doesn’t belong on a 941, the information you need to complete it properly, and how to self-review before an official review happens.

Depending on the complexity of your compensation structure, benefits, departmental decentralization and other factors, the 941 just might be a quarterly ‘red flag’ for an IRS audit.
