Why do I file Form 943-A?
Use Form 943-A to report your tax liability if you're a semiweekly schedule depositor. To determine if you're a semiweekly schedule depositor, see section 7 of Pub. 51, Agricultural Employer's Tax Guide.
On Form 943-A, list your tax liability for each day. Your tax liability is based on the dates wages were paid. Your liability includes:
- The federal income tax you withheld from your employees' pay, and
- Both the employer and employee share of social security and Medicare taxes.
Who needs to file Form 943-A?
File Form 943-A if you’re a semiweekly schedule depositor. Monthly schedule depositors who accumulate $100,000 or more of tax liability on any day of a calendar month become semiweekly schedule depositors on the next day and remain so for at least the remainder of the year and for the next year, and must also complete and file Form 943-A for the entire year. The $100,000 tax liability threshold requiring a next-day deposit is determined before you consider any reduction of your liability for nonrefundable credits.
