First quarter 2020 ends on Tuesday, March 31, and first quarter 2020 federal payroll tax filing and payments will not be delayed, according to our sources in Washington, D.C.
We’re moving forward with our normal federal tax filing plans. If we learn otherwise regarding the federal filing deadline, we’ll let you know as soon as possible. We are also actively monitoring changes at the state level. As these changes are solidified, we will communicate to you as soon as possible.
With a presence spanning multiple states and localities, our experienced emergency response team has detailed plans in place to be flexible in shifting business functions to unimpacted locations as needed.
Our product is designed to help you automate and simplify payroll processing.
Use our mobile apps to run payroll anywhere, right from your smart phone; your employees can also access their paystubs and review deductions from their mobile device.
AutoPayroll is another option to simplify your business processes. If you run the same payroll every pay period, whether for salary or hourly employees, you can set your payroll on cruise control and never have to worry about logging in and approving payroll or missing the payroll processing cut-off.

If you have an employee who has requested to switch to direct deposit, you can update the payment method by logging into your account, clicking on “Employees” and selecting “Employee List”. Select the employee you’d like to edit, select “Bank” and click on “Direct Deposit”. Enter the bank account and routing numbers. Repeat as needed for additional accounts for split deposits. Click save.
Note that if you had a payroll entry in progress before you updated the employee, the system will require you to reset payroll and re-enter the information.
