May 2023 Business Due Dates

May 1 - Federal Unemployment Tax

Deposit the tax owed through March if it is more than $500.

May 10 - Social Security, Medicare and Withheld Income Tax

File Form 941 for the first quarter of 2023. This due date applies only if you deposited the tax for the quarter in full and on time.

May 15 - Employer’s Monthly Deposit Due

If you are an employer and the monthly deposit rules apply, May 15 is the due date for you to make your deposit of Social Security, Medicare and withheld income tax for April 2023. This is also the due date for the non-payroll withholding deposit for April 2023 if the monthly deposit rule applies.

Weekends & Holidays:

If a due date falls on a Saturday, Sunday or legal holiday, the due date is automatically extended until the next business day that is not itself a legal holiday.

Disaster Area Extensions:

Please note that when a geographical area is designated as a disaster area, due dates will be extended. For more information whether an area has been designated a disaster area and the filing extension dates visit the following websites:

FEMA: https://www.fema.gov/disaster/declarations

IRS: https://www.irs.gov/newsroom/tax-relief-in-disaster-situations

For example, disaster-area taxpayers in most of California and parts of Alabama and Georgia now have until Oct. 16, 2023, to file various federal individual and business tax returns and make tax payments.
