Form 941 Form 1099 / W-2 Form 2290

The IRS states that Form 941 should not be used for reporting taxes withheld and wages paid to household employees. An individual who has paid household employees should use Schedule H. 

When a household employee file Form 1040 (Personal federal income tax return), they should attach Schedule H, reporting the wages and taxes withheld from them. If you file Form 1040, 1040-SR, 1040-NR, 1040-SS, or 1041, Schedule H must be attached to it by April 15. The return must be filed if the employee received more than $2,100 in a year.

If you file Form 1040, 1040-SR, 1040-NR, 1040-SS, or 1041, the employee must attach Schedule H to it by April 15. The return must be filed if the employee received more than $2,100 in a year.
 
If you have filed Form 941 reporting taxes related to household employees, you may have to file Form 941-X. With ExpressEfile, you can complete Form 941-X to correct the wrongly reported information.
