Internet forms: Password-protecting Form 941
Q. I frequently download Form 941, Employer’s Quarterly Federal Tax Return, from irs.gov to file quarterly wage and tax reports for my clients, but it no longer allows me to add password protection. When I try to password–protect the form, I get the error message “You cannot change security on the document because it is signed or certified.” Is there a workaround or a way to password–protect this document?
3. Select File, Save a Copy, and save the file to a new name, as suggested in the screenshot below.
