Q3 2020 Payroll Deadlines

Tax Filing Action Items 

When managing your payroll, it’s important to note key dates to ensure that Zenefits is able to file and make payments on your behalf in a timely and accurate manner. 

Check key information: 
Validate your company’s information is up to date. Verify that you've entered a tax ID in payroll for every state where your employees live or work, for instance (note: account numbers must be in the correct format per jurisdiction regulations in order to be accepted during filings) 
Verify your workers’ personal information (name, address/work location, SSN, etc) is correct and up to date 
Verify your workers’ payroll data is correct. Double check that their earnings and deductions total up to the amount you expect and that you haven’t forgotten to account for any manual or voided checks 
Confirm that the tax rates for every state have been updated to the accurate percentage 
If you have received any outstanding tax notices from any tax agencies, contact Customer Care to investigate further
