An employer now reports the amount of the taxes shown on the Section 3121(q) Notice and Demand on line 5e of the employer's Form 941 for the calendar quarter in which notice and demand is made. Any errors discovered on previously filed Forms 941 for these taxes are corrected on line 11 of Form 941-X.

Any errors discovered on previously filed Forms 941 (for quarters ending after March 31, 2010, and before January 1, 2011) for this exemption are corrected on lines 12a–12c of Form 941-X.
