943 Form 2023 - 2024

Form 943—Employer’s Annual Federal Tax Return for Agricultural Employees is similar to the Employer’s Quarterly Federal Tax Return, Form 941.

While Form 941 is filed for every quarter, farmers who hire employees whether it be seasonal or not must file Form 943 for every year. Unlike an individual tax return, Form 943 must be filed by January 31st.

Form 943 a farmer files in 2024 by January 31st of that year for the 2023 taxes must also be paid by January 31st. However, if the farmer’s tax liability is $0 for that year, the filing deadline will be February 10, 2024.

2024 Form 943 is the same as any other Forms 943 in the past. Farmers must provide their total tax liability for each month during the tax year. Other than these, on Form 943, employers must provide information about income paid to employees and taxes withheld from their income.

Since the income paid to employees and taxes withheld from their income must be reported with a Form W2—Wage and Tax Statement, it also needs to be filed for every employee.

Content of Form 943

Everything that needs to be reported on Form 943 include the following.

  1. Total wages subject to Social Security tax
