Frequently Asked Questions
What payroll taxes need filing?
Payroll leaders must regularly remit federal income taxes, Social Security, Medicare, federal and state unemployment insurance, and disability insurance on behalf of employees. Reporting frequencies vary - some monthly, others quarterly. Don’t forget annual reconciliations and W-2s. Additionally, certain industries face further niche filings like tip taxes in hospitality or transit taxes in transportation. Our experts track the intricacies so you avoid missteps.
What reporting deadlines do we need to know?
Keeping pace with myriad payroll tax reporting deadlines across jurisdictions remains profoundly challenging, yet missing just one triggers rigid penalties erasing operational budgets. Mastering intricate calendars splitting local, state, and federal demands makes seasoned professionals essential partners.
For example, the IRS requires either monthly or semi-weekly federal tax deposits depending on amounts, reconciled through quarterly 941 returns and annual 940 FUTA filings on January 31st. However, state authorities enforce distinct timetables like California’s quarterly DE9 and DE9C reports. Don’t forget annual 1099 reconciliations and employee W-2 issuance by January 31st.
Additionally, entities like nonprofits face further specialized non-profit tax requirements like the PCORI fee or 501(c)3 exempt status filings. Sectional industries also pose niche reports like heavy highway vehicle use taxes. Simply keeping compliance calendars and versions organized eats resources quickly. Can your team recite form sequences instinctively? Our experts are immersed in this moving maze so you focus elsewhere.
