Year-end is approaching at light speed and will be here before you know it. There are a few things to keep in mind to make year-end payroll reporting go smoothly and accurately.
There are two deposit schedules (monthly or semiweekly) for determining when you deposit Social Security and Medicare taxes and withheld Federal income tax. These schedules tell you when a deposit is due after a tax liability arises (for example, when you have a payday). Before the beginning of each calendar year, you must determine which of the two deposit schedules you must use.
State and Federal agencies frequently make changes to the reports businesses are required to complete, and 2021 is poised to be a record-setting year. From brand new reports like the California Pay Data Report, changes to the most commonly filed reports like the 941, to the myriad of State form updates, Aatrix’s Forms Division is continually releasing new and updated forms.
After significant changes to the W-4 in 2020, the IRS made very few changes to the 2021 W-4. The redesign attempts to make it easier for employees to understand and complete the form. Learn more about these changes.
