Do I need to file 941x

After filing our 941 I realized there was an error in the wages line 2. The error only involved income for the Pastor and not the secretary. The Pastor's wages are considered self employment and therefore no taxes are withheld.

This correction does not effect the taxes paid or owed on the 941. Bottom line for taxes paid remains unchanged.

Do I file a 941x to correct only the wage amount? The form is really to correct over or underpayment of taxes of which we do not have.

If you want to DIY your payroll, I highly recommend you look at using Gusto! It is very user friendly and their support is awesome! Plus they know how to set up and maintain payrolls for churches and nonprofit organizations.

Note: I am a "partner" of Gusto, but as I have told you before ... I never recommend anything that we or our clients have not tried and love =)
