Business owners should consider filing payroll and employment taxes electronically.
Benefits of filing electronically over paper filing:
- It’s faster.
- It’s more secure and accurate.
- You get an email to confirm the IRS received the form within 24 hours.
Ways businesses can e-file:
- Employers can e-file using IRS-approved software. The software instructs the user to apply for an online signature PIN. Employers should allow at least 45 days to receive their PIN.
- Employers can have their tax professional file for them. The Authorized IRS e-file Provider Locator Service can help employers locate an Electronic Return Originator.
