Even if you have a lot of accounting and bookkeeping experience, and even if you have extensive knowledge of the business and workers you oversee, that doesn’t mean it’s a good use of your time to calculate payroll taxes manually. At least not for every employee and every pay period. Instead, use a software solution to import, input, track, transfer, print, and file payroll information.
Advanced Micro Solutions (AMS) offers precisely this type of software support. For just over $200, you can download our Forms Filer and AMS Payroll. This software package will provide an easy payroll calculator and the back-end filing support you need. That way, you won’t find at the end of the tax year that your software solution can’t meet your filing needs after all.
Software-Based Payroll Support
As a pure exercise in number crunching, it’s not difficult to calculate payroll taxes. The IRS lays out the specific guidelines and percentages for these FICA taxes, and most everyone is familiar at least with the concept of Social Security/Medicare/Medicaid taxes. Nevertheless, when you also add in applicable state payroll taxes and the week-to-week calculations of even a handful or a dozen employees, the benefit of automated software solutions is easy to recognize.
Most software solutions include an easy way to calculate payroll. AMS Payroll is no exception. Our software will automatically calculate federal, state, and local payroll taxes. You’ll also know that you have updated tax tables, while also being able to set up to as many as 40 User Defined Fields. We make it easy to calculate health benefits, retirement plans, paid vacation, and the like.
Versatile Payroll Solutions to Calculate Payroll Taxes
When you calculate payroll taxes is also the best time to track, update, and prepare your unemployment filing forms. AMS Payroll transfers your week-to-week payroll numbers to the relevant employer-based filing forms (940, 941, 943, 944, or 1040 Sch H), as well as any state filing forms. You can then electronically file this information.
Pretty much every business with employees has these supplemental filing forms. That said, not every business uses a sophisticated payroll software solution. If you calculate your own payroll but still need form filing support, we have a more affordable option. Our Forms Filer Plus includes employer filing form software at a lower cost than our Payroll module.
