ezPaycheck Payroll Software: Pay W2 Employees and 1099 Contractors


ezPaycheck payroll software comes with the flexible tax options. It can process the paychecks for both W-2 employees and 1099 contractors. To make the future tax reporting easier, we suggest our clients to add a second account to handle the paychecks for 1099 contractors. (Note: ezPaycheck software can support multiple accounts with no extra charge)

Step 1: Set up the first company account for W-2 employees.
