If you deposited the tax for the quarter in full and on time, you have until Aug. 10 to file the return. Annual filers deposit any undeposited tax, if the total liability is $2,500 or more for 2018, but less than $2,500 for the second quarter. All employers deposit FUTA taxes owed through June, if more than $500. If you maintain an employee benefits plan, such as a pension, profit-sharing or stock bonus plan, file Form 5500 or 5500-EZ for calendar year 2017. If you use a fiscal year as your plan year, file the form by the last day of the 7th month after the plan year ends.
