“I apologize for the confusion regarding the 941 Line 1. Line 1 doesn’t necessarily shows the total number of employees who were paid during the quarter. Instead it shows the total numbers who were paid for the specific pay period that includes the 12th day of the 3rd month of the quarter. Say for 1st quarter, if there are employees who were paid within the pay period that includes March 12, then they will be added on the count.”
“I totally understand that you are confused right now. However, Line 1 of 941 Form will only show the total numbers of employees who were paid during the quarter for the specific pay period that includes March 12. This is just for IRS statistical record and does not really held importance on the form. So whether it is 0 or 4 that shows on the form under Line 1, it doesn’t matter to IRS.”
“I will be notifying the back end team regarding this concern and will have them fix it for you. I understand that you need to submit this form on time and that accurate information should reflect on the form.”
Because one employee got terminated and employer has only two active employees, therefore the number of active employees should populate in Line 1.
Regardless if employer has a terminated employee, all employees on that specific quarter should show in Line 1.
No employees were paid on the pay period that includes June 12 therefore; the answer is 0.
Line 1 should populate the number of employees that are terminated therefore; the answer is 1.
