Prior filed incorrectly 941 forms for our church

by Patricia Swim

I filed 941 forms for 2014 reporting only the portion of deductions from 6 of our ministers. I used the box 5a and box 5c to report their portion of SS and Medicare deductions. The IRS has put a lien on our acct and waiting for 941X forms to be filed for each qtr. Do I have to redo any W2s that were sent out to our ministers which has the SS and Medicare reported for them? Need help in filing out the 941X for those qtrs.

Your church has 6 or more ministers? Must be a large church.

It is my understanding you should not withhold social security taxes on clergy; they are suppose to file an SE tax form and pay their own social security taxes. Since you have, just do corrected 941 forms showing all withholdings and do corrected w-2 forms if the filed ones are inaccurate. Look under the links to the left for more details in doing 941 forms.
