APA's Payroll Tax Calendar for 2021

BY: Edward Kowalski, Esq. | 01/06/21

Payroll professionals need to keep track of a dizzying number of federal tax reporting and withholding deadlines, as well as reporting requirements, throughout the year. The APA Compliance Calendar for 2021 has been released on APA’s website and makes sense of all of these due dates.

The 2021 Compliance Calendar includes the filing dates for Forms 941, deposit due dates for withheld federal employment taxes, as well as the requirements for filing and distribution of Forms W-2, 1095-C, 1099-MISC, 1099-NEC (beginning with 2021 filing for tax year 2020), and more. The calendar also includes the dates within which employers may make lawful shortfall deposits.
