Congratulations on growing your business! When you add a new employee, you'll want to make sure you have their W-4 information handy. (Print a W-4.) Remember to report your new employee to your state so they can track employment statistics.
Complete the pay info for your employees before you pay them.
To add an employee:
- Go to the Employees tab
- Click Add employee.
Enter information about the employee
- Click Done.
All states require that you report new hires. Click the check box if you've reported your new hire.
When possible, we pre-fill the new hire form for you and put it on your To Do list.
When we pre-fill the new hire form for the state, we'll enter the first paycheck date for the employee rather than the employee's hire or start date. The first paycheck date is the info required by all states (except Colorado).
To see your to do list, go to the To Do tab
For information about new hire reporting for your state:
- Go to Payroll resources: Tools, supplies, websites.
- Click State government resources.
- Select your state.
- Look for New Hire Reporting and click the corresponding link.
