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.

What’s New in Taxes: There’s time to claim your 2013 tax refund

Recently, the IRS announced that an estimated 1 million taxpayers who did not file an income tax return in 2013 could claim their share of $1 billion in unclaimed refunds for the 2013 tax year. According to the law, taxpayers have three years to claim a tax refund. After that, the funds belong to the U.S. Treasury. So, if you did not file in 2013, send your 2013 tax return via certified mail to arrive at the IRS by April 18.
