Employers who discover they under or over withheld income taxes from wages or social security or Medicare tax in a prior year use Form 944-X to report those taxes and either make a payment, claim a refund, or request an abatement.
Affected Public: Private Sector: Businesses or other for-profits.
Estimated Total Burden Hours: 15,702,300.
