Every week? Every other week? On an agreed upon schedule, just calculate your employees’ wages, withhold the correct amount of taxes & issue their paycheck.

Paying Payroll Taxes

You will need to pay the government the Federal & State taxes withheld from your employees’ paychecks — as well as payroll taxes your business owes.

Filing Tax Forms

Let’s face it. Forms are frustrating. But you’re required to fill & file them, so the government knows who’s been paid what, the taxes paid, & other details. Most businesses file quarterly;  and some file monthly or yearly.
