Economic Stimulus Plan – Your Business and Payroll

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

The new stimulus legislation means changes to payroll no later than April 1, 2009.

What does the stimulus plan mean to your business?

New payroll tax credits and COBRA provisions will mean changes to how you handle payroll taxes and quarterly tax filings. The IRS asks that employers calculate federal withholding and advance earned income credit payments with new tables just issued as soon as possible, but no later than April 1st, 2009.

Why not let Intuit Payroll handle the burden of tracking these changes so you can focus on running your business?

Over one million small businesses trust us to do just that already, more than any other payroll service.

With Intuit Payroll:

  • Keep up with changes. Intuit Payroll’s team of compliance professionals works with tax authorities to get ahead of changing requirements and deliver the latest tax rates, tax forms (for services that include forms) and compliance information to our customers
  • Be confident your payroll is in compliance. In 2008 alone, Intuit Payroll delivered over 490 compliance rule updates to customers. We worry about keeping up with changing payroll requirements, so you don’t have to!
  • Get every penny of the payroll tax credit you deserve. The stimulus legislation provides up to $400 of payroll tax credits per eligible individual or $800 per couple. For as little as $100 per year for Basic Payroll service, Intuit can help you make sure that eligible employees get the tax credit dollars they’re entitled to.

A payroll update is scheduled for mid-March and will include important changes resulting from the new legislation.  For more information, visit Intuit’s American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 webpage.
