What Is New with 2012 Social Security Tax

by admin 6. January 2012 04:18

Nearly 160 million workers will benefit from the extension of the reduced payroll tax rate that has been in effect for 2011. IRS required that employers should implement the new payroll tax rate as soon as possible in 2012 but not later than Jan. 31, 2012.

 

Following are the instructions from Notice 1036

 

The employee tax rate for social security is 4.2% on wages paid and tips received before March 1, 2012. The employee tax rate for social security increases to 6.2% on wages paid and tips received after February 29, 2012. The employer tax rate for social security remains unchanged at 6.2%. The social security wage base limit is $110,100. The Medicare tax rate is 1.45% each for the employee and employer, unchanged from 2011. There is no wage base limit for Medicare tax.

 

Employers should implement the 4.2% employee social security tax rate as soon as possible, but not later than January 31, 2012. After implementing the 4.2% rate, employers should make an offsetting adjustment in a subsequent pay period to correct any overwithholding of social security tax as soon as possible, but not later than March 31, 2012.

How to enter YTD payroll data?

by admin 20. December 2011 08:18

YTD means Year-to-date. It is a period from the beginning of the current year, and continues up to the present day. The YTD information on the check stubs will update automatically each time you add a new paycheck.

 

This YTD entry feature is for users who start ezPaycheck in mid-year. (If you start ezPaycheck from Jan 1, you do not need to enter YTD manually.)

 

For example, company ABC handles paychecks for employee Ryan Smith manually from 1/1/2011 to 6/30/2011. They plan to use ezPaycheck from 7/1/2011-7/15/2011 pay period. So instead of entering the old checks one by one, they can enter the YTD summary data here.

 

You should add the YTD data first before you generate a new paycheck. So you can see the correct YTD data on paycheck stubs. 

 

Here are the steps.

If you have not installed ezPaycheck payroll software, you can download it from

http://www.halfpricesoft.com/payroll_software_download.asp

Step 1: Set up company information

 

Step 2: Add a new employee Ryan Smith

 

Step 3: Select Ryan from Employee list and open YTD manually input screen.  Then enter the summary information for 1/1/2011 to 6/30/2011.

 

 

Step 4: When you generate a new check, you will see the YTD data is updated.

Why Your Company Should Use Employee Attendance Tracking Software

by admin 10. October 2011 11:11

The Employee Attendance Tracking Software is a system that has various advantages which include but is not limited to; its affordability, ease of maintenance, accountability, efficacy and ease of payroll processing. This program has been used by many organizations and has proved to be relevant. It is therefore recommended that each enterprise or firm should utilize this software to enjoy the benefits of low operating and service costs.

Affordability

The affordability of this system is in its small initial investment. To be precise its initial and maintenance capital is low. The system is almost half the cost of most automatic machines. Moreover, there are no extra tools to buy like in the case of most machines. It thus posses to be inexpensive.

Ease of Maintenance

Its ease of maintenance is due to the fact that it is not divided into many components. There is therefore no need for replacement, servicing or support costs as they are not incurred. It only needs a comprehensive support program to ensure a long term operation and function.

This system is different from other ordinary machines as it has no workings such as gears, motors or other components that wear and tear. The program would not lose its function unexpectedly and there will be no day that you will have to refer it to a mechanic.

Accountability

The use of time cards helps to enhance its accountability. Every worker will be accountable for the actions that one will take. No blame will thus be shifted from a worker to another. Cheating will also be minimal as everyone is answerable. Employers would therefore not have a hard time in coordination and supervision of their staff.

Time cards also work in favor to both business owners and workers. It protects business owners by helping them identify the numbers of hours that their staff have actually said they did. On the other hand, it protects the staff because they can identify the number of hours they have worked thus making it hard for their employers to cheat them out of their remuneration package.

Efficacy

This system also helps to maintain efficacy in a business. It even detects time management in an orderly manner. The program registers who is in and who is not in real time. Moreover, less paper work is required therefore reducing storage space and outlay. This system provides management with access and adequate knowledge of each member of staff in their organization. It thus runs the firm in an effective and efficient manner.

Ease of payroll processing

Payroll processing is also simple as its paycheck is not complicated. The time cards reports submit an application to your firm payroll rules and regulations to instantaneously sum normal hours and overtime. Entries that have been modified are tracked for easy monitoring and evaluation. Time spent totaling, reading and detecting payroll rules to manual time cards can be practically reduced or even eliminated.

Employee Attendance Tracking Software is thus an important system that has proved to be vital to many organizations. One such software that comes highly recommended by many small-business owners is ezTimeSheet employee attendance and time tracking software, which automates employee time, PTO, sick and vacation tracking tasks, and frees up managers’ time for more important tasks.

Employee attendance tracking shouldn't be a nightmare for employers.

Why Small Business Needs Payroll Software

by admin 3. June 2011 03:07

Business owners are constantly searching for new and innovative ways to decrease their costs and increase their efficiency. If you own a small business, there are many great strategies you can implement into your plans to decrease your costs and increase your productivity, but one valuable solution in particular is certainly small business payroll software. The following article will review how this software can improve your operations today.

Cost
The cost savings alone can be a very attractive benefit of using payroll software. By managing your accounts on your own rather than hiring a professional to do it for you, you can save your company thousands of dollars every single month. You can then invest the money you save into more important aspects of your company that will ultimately result in further growth and productivity in the future.

Since you will be completing the employee payment tasks on your own if you choose to use software, you will also be in a position to guarantee the accuracy of the information you record. This additional benefit can help you keep track of your operations and help you make the right decisions going into the future.

Security
Security is another important benefit of using a secure computer program. Payroll information is generally of a very sensitive nature, but it is very important for companies to keep clear, accurate, and secure employee records. By utilizing an in-house program, you can avoid exposing this important information to hackers on the Internet and you can also protect the computer that houses the information to secure it even further.

Many small business owners love to use specially designed computer programs to manage their employees and payments, because this type of software can help them keep their records organized and accurate. Owners who keep important employee and company records on paper files often have trouble finding the documents they need when they need them. Also, owners who keep important information about their operations in a single location are at risk of losing the valuable information due to fires and other hazards.

Convenience
Along with helping you keep your records organized, this type of program can also simplify all of your operations that are related to your payroll. Once you are using one of these programs, you will be able to manage employee payments in only a few short and easy steps.

You can also handle all of your tax documents using a program that offers tax filing solutions. With these programs, you can automatically calculate your taxes, create reminders to file, and you can even file your taxes online. Once you start using one of these programs, you will likely find your finances to be greatly simplified overall.

Basically, if you are looking for a great way to manage your payroll without spending a large amount of money, you should review the various small business payroll software products you can buy today. Once you have integrated payroll software into your operations, you will be able to better track your employees and your finances, but you will also be able to handle your entire operation with greater ease as well.

2011 Connecticut State Income Tax Table Change

by admin 20. May 2011 02:48

 

Paychecks take a double hit from income tax hike starting Aug. 1

 

Many Connecticut wage earners will notice their paychecks shrinking faster than anticipated starting this August, when the Department of Revenue Services begins implementing the new $875 million state income tax increase.

That's because the tax hike, which adds three new tax rates, reduces a property tax credit and adds an earned income credit for poor families, is retroactive to Jan. 1, but won't be drawn from paychecks until August.

That means the state's tax agency, which released new withholding tables this week, has five months to collect 12 months' worth of tax obligations. For the 22 weeks between Aug. 1 and Dec. 31, the additional withholding will be about 2.4 times the increase that will be applied starting in January 2012.

by admin 2. May 2011 07:17

Hoping to keep ezPaycheck small business payroll software affordable for every size company in the continuing recession, managers at Halfpricesoft.com have decided to reject a proposed price hike for ezPaycheck. ezPaycheck 2012 will be the 7th year in a row without a price increase for the popular software.

“In a down economy, companies need to streamline and increase efficiency, so they can be more productive with every minute and every dollar,” said Halfpricesoft.com founder Dr. Ge. “ezPaycheck lets managers and business owners spend as little time as possible on running payroll, so they can focus on the income-earning aspects of their business. We don’t feel it’s appropriate to potentially put that efficiency out of the reach of some customers by raising the price at this time.”

Available for just $89 per installation, ezPaycheck has remained at that affordable price since its initial release in 2005. Equipped with an intuitive graphical user interface, the payroll software is designed to be easy to use even for people without an accounting background or with little computer experience. Very little setup or learning curve is necessary, and most users can begin running payroll within minutes of installing ezPaycheck.
