Avoid the Wild-Goose Chase of a Free Payroll Calculator

If you’re looking for a free payroll calculator, you’re in luck. Any payroll software is going to have some kind of free payroll calculator, but there’s a big difference between a basic number-cruncher, automated tax calculations, and a customized payroll solution that can accommodate the employee benefits offered by your company/business clients.

You can easily find any number of free payroll and calculator tools, but the problem is sifting through all the red herring, fine print, and pay-for tie-ins. Put another way, the best free payroll services are typically the ones that generate revenue from membership fees or else subject you to ads. Most are just trying to sell you something at the end of the line, and before you can use their free payroll calculator to actually doing anything meaningful in terms of solving your payroll service needs.

Discover Cost-Effective Payroll Software from AMS

One of the most common time-wasters with a free payroll calculator is a system that lets you calculate the payroll data, but doesn’t offer any form filing support. Again, this is really little more than a basic calculator tool. Most are then trying to sell you a more advanced but ultimately substandard system after they’ve already captured your attention.

Here’s a better plan from the start: Make a minimal investment in our affordable software with a versatile product catalogue and modular pricing. You don’t have to choose between free payroll software that disappoints in the end and over-priced custom software services that end up costing several hundred dollars a year. For just over $200, you can buy our Forms Filer platform and AMS Payroll for all your payroll and form filing data management needs.

Versatile and Powerful Software Options

Most of our business customers recognize the value that AMS Payroll offers their company. But if you’re set on doing your own bookkeeping with a free payroll calculator, this solution can work for diligent business owners making due with tight margins. Nevertheless, if you have more than just one or two employees, you’re still going to be interested in basic form filing support for employment tax filings.

This, too, speaks to the value of our modular software approach. With our platform solution and Forms Filer Plus module , you can get affordable software support for your W-2, W-3, 1099, 941, 940, 941, 943, 944 and 1040 Sch H forms—as well as support for the applicable filing forms in all 50 states, D.C.,

You might also be looking for an even more comprehensive and sophisticated payroll and form filing solution. With E-File Direct, you can transmit your quarterly and end-of-year filing forms directly to the IRS and SSA in unlimited quantity.
