The Internal Revenue Service is no longer mailing out Form 941, Employer’s Quarterly Federal Tax Return, nor the Form 940, Employer’s Annual Federal Unemployment (FUTA) Tax Return, among other business mailings.

Starting in 2011, the IRS stopped the mailing of certain tax packages. According to the IRS, “the IRS took these steps due to the continued growth of electronic filing as well as to help reduce costs.”

Don’t worry: you can print out a pdf of Form 941. Look for appropriate mailing addresses for your payroll tax return on page 5 of the Instructions for Form 941.

The IRS also offers an e-file program for business taxes if you’re interested in filing your payroll tax returns and other forms that way.
