Can I file Form 941 electronically in ParishSOFT Accounting?
Currently, the software does not have the ability to file electronically.
Where does the software get the number of employees for Line 1?
The form says "..number of employees who received wages, ...for the pay period including March 12 (Quarter 1), June 12 (Quarter 2), September 12 (Quarter 3), or December 12 (Quarter 4)"
The application finds the payroll date that is closest to the 12th of the final month in that quarter and reports the number of employees for that payroll on Line 1 of the 941.
How does the software know whether I'm a monthly or semi-weekly depositor for federal tax purposes?
In Payroll → Setup → Employer Information, the software only allows two choices: monthly and semi-weekly. If your deposit frequency is NOT one of those, you will have to edit Schedule B.

Where does the software get the amount for total deposits made for the quarter for Schedule B?
It calculates it. If you made deposits that are different from the calculated number, you will have to edit the Form. If you edit Schedule B, the changes do not flow to the Form; you will have to edit the form.
Schedule B amounts include employee withholding (federal, social security, and Medicare) as well as the employer match for social security and Medicare.
