During time as a restaurant dishwasher, an employee was paid in cash and didn’t receive any type of wage statement. He sued his employer for civil damages, alleging that it willfully and fraudulently filed false tax returns with the IRS by not listing him as an employee, and by failing to report his compensation, on its Form 941. The form is an employer’s quarterly federal tax return. However, a U.S. District Court dismissed the case, explaining that listing employees’ names or their identifying information on the form isn’t required. Form 941 requires an employer to fill in the number of employees who received wages or other compensation for the pay period. (Pacheco, DC NY 8/8/2019)
