IRS encourages employers to electronically file payroll tax returns
WASHINGTON — The Internal Revenue Service today reminded employers that the best way to file their next quarterly payroll tax return by the Oct. 31, 2023, due date is electronically.
While paper filing is available, the IRS strongly encourages e-filing. E-filing is the most secure, accurate method to file returns, and saves time.
E-filing is easy with auto-populating forms and schedules and a step-by-step process that performs calculations for the user.
The IRS acknowledges receipt of e-filed returns within 24 hours, giving employers reassurance that their return was not misplaced or lost in the mail. E-file users also receive missing information alerts.
Two options to electronically file payroll tax returns
Depending on the software they choose, employers will do one or both of the following:
The second option for employers is to hire a tax professional to prepare and file their employment tax returns. Employers can use the Authorized IRS e-file Provider Locator Service to find a tax professional who can file on behalf of the business.
For more information on electronic filing of payroll tax returns, see the E-file Employment Tax Forms page.
