Dear Customer,

Payroll deduction and recognition is current, cash basis.

So, if you pay them now in 2018, even for work done in 2015, the W-2 income is listed as 2018, the payroll returns such as Form 941 filed is for 2018.

In sum, the pay you made in the first quarter of 2018 is 2018 filing.

We correct prior year payroll returns when those returns have mistakes. Your prior years return is correctly filed based on the payment in the prior years.

For this employee, you are paying him now. The W-2 and Form 941, etc. are for 2018.

Please feel free to follow up.

Regards,

Fiona

HI Fiona,Thank you for your input here. This answer warrants a follow up question-so If I run additional payroll, will I need to amend my 940 payment and return that I just filed for March of 2018?
Customer reply replied 1 month ago
Or could I simply make an additional deposit to account for the extra payroll I need to run?
