Payroll FAQ's

What advantages does your payroll service offer my employees?
With our payroll service, employees are in control of viewing their compensation and benefits. For example, they don't have to be in the office on payday. With direct deposit and our secure website, they can go online anywhere to print their pay stubs and review their complete payroll history.

Some of my employees have direct deposit, but others prefer a paycheck every pay period. Can you handle both groups?
Certainly. You have the option of offering your employees a "paperless" pay stub via email and our secure website. Or if they prefer, you can print out a physical check and stub.

Is Macomb Income Tax’s tax filing system accurate?
Yes. We assume your tax responsibility. If you were to ever receive a notice from the IRS or any other tax agency, just give us a call and send them over to us. We'll work with the agency on your behalf and if we're at fault, we'll pay all the penalties and fines.

What about reliability and security?
Reliability and security are top priorities. Industry-leading security protects your data, keeping it secure and available if you need it.

When are funds for quarterly taxes deducted?
All funds for a current payroll, including tax liabilities, are typically deducted 2 days prior to the check date.

Can the payroll schedule be adjusted?
Yes. We can move the pay date for a particular payroll or change your entire payroll schedule.

What documentation is needed for you to process my payroll?
Before we can begin processing payroll, please send the following documents: 1) Payroll Services EFT Agreement; 2) State Power of Attorney (some may need to be notarized); 3) Tax Information Authorization; 4) Proof of Prior Balances (or most recent QTD/YTD reports). We request that you provide the following information shortly after being set-up as a customer: 1) Copies of quarterly and annual returns; 2) Tax deposit coupons; 3) copies of state registrations; 4) SUI Rate Change Notice; 5) Employer Identification Number. These documents will help facilitate future tax filings and payments.

Can we process a separate pay run in addition to the scheduled pay cycle?
Yes.

Will Macomb Income Tax process payroll tax filings for a previous quarter or year?
We will only process payroll tax filings for the periods in which our services were used. Any payrolls processed in a quarter prior to beginning service with us are not our responsibility. Because we file and pay taxes on a current basis, you will never need us to file or pay taxes for a previous quarter or year.
