Must be on current version software to enroll in Payroll Tax Services. Payroll Tax Service Plans are non-refundable, and are renewed automatically. Plans renewed monthly require a minimum of one-year enrollment, subject to a charge if withdrawn earlier. Complimentary upgrades are provided as released during membership, with no warranty to any schedule. For more information, see Terms and Conditions.
Promotional discounts are sometimes offered for an initial purchase of a payroll tax service plan purchased at the same time as a new or upgrade AccountEdge Pro product. In this case, the product must be put into the cart first and the payroll tax update service added on the same order. Initial enrollment applies to new services and services reinstated after having lapsed, and requiring the purchase of an upgrade. This offer cannot be combined with any other offer.
Due to risk factors associated with providing Direct Deposit, a 1-day hold is put on your transactions, starting the first business day after you submit your transactions. For example, if you have a Friday payroll, you must process it by Wednesday 7:30 PM EST for your employees to have access to their funds on Friday morning. Application approval required. Transaction fees apply.
Payroll Forms Service does not provide payroll tax tables. Payroll tax tables and on-going updates are available through Payroll Tax Service.
