Applicable To
Form 941 Form 1099 / W-2 Form 2290

Though you don’t have wages to report, Form 941 must be filed with the IRS. If you have started filing Form 941 for a quarter, then you have to continue filing it for every quarter. The IRS will consider you as a defaulter if you fail to file Form 941 and you will be penalized for not filing and paying the taxes. 

For any particular quarter, if you have not paid wages to your employees, obviously you will have zero taxes to report. In such cases too, the IRS expects you to file Form 941 reporting zero taxes on Form 941. Thus, whether you have taxes to report or not, you are liable to file Form 941 by the deadline. If you already have filed your final Form 941, then you are exempted from reporting zero taxes on Form 941.
