What is Form 940?

Form 940 is used to calculate a business' annual Federal Unemployment Tax Act (FUTA) tax. The money from this tax goes towards paying unemployment compensation for those that have lost their jobs.

What is Form 940?

Is My Business Eligible?

If it is found that paying the FUTA tax is required, one must then fill out the form. There are 7 sections of this form which determines the base FUTA tax along with any adjustments required.

Determining Your Base FUTA Tax

Part two of Form 940 determines the base amount the business must pay before any adjustments are made. Since the first $7,000 of each employee's income is taxable by the FUTA tax, all payments to all employees throughout the last calendar year must be listed.

Determining Your Base FUTA Tax

Certain payments and fringe benefits are exempt from this listing. Consult a tax professional to see if any of yours are. Once the sum is found, it is multiplied by the effective tax rate. The resulting product is the base FUTA tax.

Calculating FUTA Tax Adjustments

If the business's expenses were not SUTA taxable, or if the employer paid wages in a credit reduction state, certain adjustments can be made to the FUTA tax in order to adjust for these changes.

Calculating FUTA Tax Adjustments

If some of the FUTA wages were exempt from the state unemployment tax, or if any of the state unemployment taxes are going to be paid late, other adjustment must also be made.
