Payroll Tax Help Question

Question: What is required to do payroll for my corporation? 

Answer: I recommend that you use a third party payroll company.  There are several companies out there that provide payroll services.  You may also get payroll services from your bookkeeping software vendor or from your bank.

If want to do the payroll yourself, then I recommend you read the IRS and State of Michigan publications on payroll.

Publication 15, Employer’s Tax Guide.  This publication outlines the IRS requirements for payroll.

Michigan Income Tax Withholding Guide and 2012 Supplement.  These two guides outlines the State of Michigan requirements for payroll.
