If you run payroll, you’re responsible for paying employer payroll tax annually. And while all tax forms need to be filed as accurately as possible, employer payroll tax forms should be completed with the utmost level of accuracy. In order to properly check all the right boxes, let’s answer some common employer payroll tax questions.
Tax season is upon us and of all the forms employees, CPAs, HR professionals, and accountants prioritize, the W-2 is at the top of the list.

So what does your company offer when it comes to employee benefits? Are you using the same benefits package as you did ten years ago or are you evolving with the times? By evaluating the needs and wants of your employees, you can optimize your benefits package and improve your organization’s overall recruitment and retention rates. So how do we do this?
