Forms 941-SS and 941-PR won’t be around after the fourth quarter of 2023. Employers in U.S. territories who don’t have to use Form 944 will use Form 941 or the new Form 941(SP) if they want it in Spanish.

You can’t use Form 944 if: 

  1. You’re a household employer, meaning you only have people working in your home.

  3. You haven’t received a notification from the IRS.
