EMPLOYERS SHOULD CHOOSE THEIR PAYROLL SERVICE PROVIDER CAREFULLY TO PROTECT AGAINST FRAUD
Updated: Mar 17
When hiring a company to handle payroll and payroll tax, employers should carefully choose their payroll service provider. This can help a business avoid missed deposits for employment taxes and other unpaid bills.
Most of these businesses provide quality service but there are some who don't have their clients' best interests in mind. Each year, there are a few payroll service providers who don't submit their client's payroll taxes and close down abruptly. The damage hits their unsuspecting clients hard.
Typically, these clients remain legally responsible for paying the taxes due, even if the employer sent funds to the payroll service provider for required deposits or payments.
