Understanding Your CP221 Notice

You are not required to file Form 940, Federal Unemployment Tax.

We received your Form 940 (.pdf); however, you are not required to file. We have determined that you’re an exempt organization under section 501(e), 501(f), or 501(k) of the Internal Revenue Code and therefore, you’re exempt from federal unemployment tax.


What you must do

  • Destroy any Forms 940 you received. Do not make tax deposits for federal unemployment tax.
  • Contact your state to find out if you’re required to make contributions under the state unemployment compensation law.
