How to Include Payment With 941 or NYS-45

If there is a balance due showing on the 941 or NYS-45 form, payment information may be submitted to electronically. The IRS limits 941 payments to $2,500, and the NYS-45 has no maximum. The payment information will include the routing transit number, bank account number, and bank account type. This will allow the IRS/NY State to debit the bank account for the balance due payment.

This payment, while made through Yearli software, is not made to Yearli. This means that Yearli Support is not able to confirm payment information, submitted bank details, submitted amount, etc. You will need to contact either the IRS or the state to confirm those details.

Making a 941 or NYS-45 Payment if the Form Has Been Filed

If the form was already filed without the payment information, the payment can still be made online:
