Major Tax Deadlines For May 2018


Note: Businesses are required to make federal tax deposits on dates determined
by various factors that differ from business to business.

Payroll tax deposits: Employers generally must deposit Form 941 payroll
taxes (income tax withheld from employees’ pay and both the employer’s
and employees’ share of FICA taxes) on either a monthly or
semiweekly deposit schedule. There are exceptions if you owe $100,000
or more on any day during a deposit period, if you owe $2,500 or less
for the calendar quarter, or if your estimated annual liability is $1,000
or less.

  • Monthly depositors are required to deposit payroll taxes accumulated within
    a calendar month by the fifteenth of the following month.
  • Semiweekly depositors generally must deposit payroll taxes on Wednesdays
    or Fridays, depending on when wages are paid.
