The California Payroll Tax is Easy to Report with AMS

Business owners, accountants, and Human Resources employees understand the difficulties associated with payroll calculation. In addition to keeping track of all employees’ hours, these professionals must carefully calculate the California payroll tax, as well as several other taxes that must be withheld. Necessary for each employee and for every paycheck, this fast process becomes tedious with the growth of an employee base. Moreover, these calculations and payments must be made correctly and on time; failure to do so will result in an incorrectly posted payment. If posted to the wrong quarter or year, a penalty or interest may be charged; all California payroll tax payments are due and must be reported in the quarter the wages were paid rather than in the quarter wages were earned.

A comprehensive payroll software is the best way to approach this complicated form, and Advanced Micro Solutions has the product to fit your needs. AMS Payroll, one of our most popular software products, will streamline your Form DE-88 process. In need of Form DE-88 support but content with your current payroll system?
