Though it’s been debated recently in the legislature, Alaska remains the only state that does not collect state sales tax or levy an individual income tax on personal income. However, the state’s Department of Revenue Tax Division reports regularly on the state’s revenue sources. Thus, transactions must be meticulously recorded. Continually updated employee and invoice data is essential for all businesses. Moreover, business owners must complete an Alaska Quarterly Contribution Report. This form is used by employers to report their quarterly unemployment insurance (UI) tax information.
Though business owners do not often encounter trouble with their Alaska payroll taxes (in fact, Alaska has the fourth most ‘business friendly’ tax policy in the country, behind only Wyoming, South Dakota, and Nevada), investing in accounting software is necessary for operational and administrative efficiency. The Alaska Quarterly Contribution Report, though deceptively simple, requires employee data and the use of several calculations. If you host employee and transactional data separate from your tax information, combining the two will be an effective way to streamline your accounting.
That’s where AMS comes in. We offer comprehensive accounting software designed to streamline your tax and payroll calculations. Instead of simply providing necessary state and Federal forms, we offer a place to store essential employee and business data. This makes your Alaska payroll taxes and Alaska Quarterly Contribution Report easier, more streamlined, and faster.
