AMS Provides CT W3 Support with State Payroll Software

Employees and employers alike collectively dread tax season. The stress is most acute for business owners, especially those operating in Connecticut—the CT W3 form, though deceptively simple, is a laborious and time-consuming process. Additionally, approaches to the form vary by industry. Agricultural employers not registered with DRS must complete a different process, and household employers must fill out a completely separate form. In addition to providing the total Connecticut wages reported during the calendar year, employers must submit a W2 for each employee. CT W3 can require a lot of time, resources, and energy.

AMS has the solution. As a provider of accounting support for more than three decades, we have the products you need to streamline your quarterly and end-of-year reporting processes. Whether you need support for CT W3, CT-W3 HHE, or UC-2, our software will alleviate some tax and wage-related stress. Our line of products is perfect for Connecticut business owners.

Our Connecticut Form Support

Annual tax and wage forms require organized storage of employee files and data. Often requiring more information than quarterly reports, annual forms like CT W3 necessitate strict bookkeeping practices. The best way to streamline this process? Keeping your employee data within the same software as your tax information. AMS products provide data management tools to support end-of-year reporting, tax form preparation, and electronic filing.

In addition to providing data support, our products are equipped with several state-specific forms. Our Connecticut forms are split between AMS Payroll Software  and the Forms Filer Plus—two of our most popular products.
