Hi. My name is ***** ***** I will be happy to help you.
First, if you are self-employed, you don't use 941. This is form is for employment taxes. It is filed by employer to report wages for his or her employees.
If you are self-employed you should have had filed estimated taxes. Your actual self-employment tax will be calculated on your tax return.
Ok. How is your business structured? It is Scorp or Corporation?
Thanks. If you are single member LLC you are treated as sole proprietor for tax purposes. Which means you don't pay yourself salary/wages just yet. Your income is profit from the business, not wages.
If you already did, you will have to issue yourself w2 and claim it separately on your tax return or file 941X to fix it.
In addition you will have profit from the business subject to self-employment tax. Was 26K your only income? Is your filing status single? And how much of the 1800 was your federal income tax withholding?
What 1800 and 1500 were for on 941 was for? Social security and Medicare tax? Wages paid? Federal withholding?
When you calculate 941 you start with income. I am not sure what are you asking.
I will opt out maybe somebody else can help you.
If your business entity is NOT a corporation and that is a single member LLC - which is classified as disregarded entity - you may pay wages to other employees - but should NOT pay wages to yourself.
On form 941 you will ONLY report wages paid to other employees.
Then you will file schedule C for your business - and will calculate self-employment taxes on schedule SE.
The situation will be different AFTER you elect the LLC to be classified as S-corporation.Let me know if you need any help with reporting.
