Wave provides Schedule H, which your employee attaches to Form 1040 (US individual income tax return) when filing an income tax return. Wave does not provide Forms 941 or 944 at present.

How much does Tax Service cost?
If you are located in a state supported by Tax Service, your full Payroll subscription will include a $35 base fee, plus $4 per employee per approved payroll per month.
As of October 2017, Tax Service is “opt out” for employers, meaning Tax Service will be set up automatically once you activate your Payroll subscription – but you can choose to cancel this service at any time.
