Instructions and Help about Form 944 Pr Refunds

Hi I'm Mel and I work for the Internal Revenue Service if you're an employer who outsources payroll duties to a third party you as the employer will generally remain responsible for those duties even if a third party takes care of some or all of your employment tax withholding reporting and payment obligations you are still ultimately responsible if any employment taxes are not timely paid here are some tips to keep in mind when outsourcing payroll when a third party enrolls you in the electronic federal tax payment system or EFTPS as it's commonly called to make the federal tax deposits on your behalf you might receive an inquiry personal identification number or pen if so immediately activate this pin to monitor the EFTPS payments and ensure the third party is making the required tax deposits on your behalf if you hire a third party to make some but not all of your tax payments you will need to enroll in EFTPS separately to make the remainder of those payments on your own even if you use a third party to deposit all required employment taxes and they provide you with an inquiry pin it's still a good idea to enroll in EFTPS separately enrolling separately gives you the ability to make up any missed deposits and it gives you the flexibility if you ever need to change payroll companies in the future in addition enrolling separately gives you the opportunity to receive email notifications about your activities on your account including payments made by a third party you will also receive confirmation of payments made canceled payments returned of payments and reminders of scheduled payments for more information go to irs.gov slash outsourcing payroll.
