Payroll tax deposit schedules

Two deposit schedules—monthly and semiweekly—are used to determine when you deposit social security, Medicare, and withheld income taxes.

Your deposit schedule is based on the total tax liability you reported on Form 941 during a four-quarter lookback period. Your deposit schedule is not determined by how often you pay your employees. Because penalties can accrue for late deposits, it's extremely important that you select the correct deposit schedule for your company. Review the following topics for more information about how and when you should deposit your payroll taxes.
