Payroll Taxes

The Internal Revenue Service has laws, regulations and penalties that the business must respect.

Every employer has specific payroll responsibilities that are required by government agencies, (federal, state or local tax authorities). These responsibilities include, but are not limited to, withholding amounts from the employees’ compensation to cover federal and state income tax, Medicare, Social Security, and possibly garnishment or child support payments. PayrollRx, Louisiana’s full payroll solution provider can easily, and cost-effectively, handle all an employer’s needs in a secure and timely manner.

Reporting and depositing payroll taxes to the appropriate agency in an accurate and timely manner is not only important but essential for a business to avoid penalties, interest and audits. For a small to mid-size business, particularly a start-up, these complex payroll tax requirements may seem intimidating and hard to understand and apply. Outsourcing payroll management, which includes both payroll accounting and payroll administration, greatly reduces the responsibilities and stress that a business owner experiences.

Payroll accounting includes calculating the earnings of employees and the related withholdings for taxes and other deductions from gross pay. It also involves the timely filing of the appropriate tax forms, and ensuring that the correct amounts are paid to the designated agencies.

Distinct from the accounting aspect, payroll administration is comprised of the many managerial aspects of maintaining a payroll, such as compliance with federal, state and local tax and employment laws, and the management of personnel and payroll information.
