When will Form 940 be released?

Eric Updated by Eric

Problem

When 940 - Employer's Annual FUTA Tax Return module is opened, Payroll System shows "Approval Pending. Form 940 is an annual form. An internet update during the 4th quarter will provide the current year's form.

Solution

There are two potential solutions, depending on whether or not we've posted the update.

Solution #1: Update Payroll System

If the update that contains Payroll System is already available, you may just simply need to perform a program update. See How do I download and install an update from within the program?

Solution #2: Wait for the update, if the update is not yet posted

CFS must wait for the government to approve certain forms. Either we are waiting for the 940 to be approved, or it's approved but we are waiting for another major module in Payroll System to be approved before we release the update. See How do I download and install an update from within the program?

Form 940 is typically released sometime in the first few weeks of December

How did we do?

W2/1099: Transferring data between 1099-MISC form and 1099-NEC form

When will my program be released (or when will it be updated)?
