Struggling with Form 5208B? AMS Payroll Can Help

Pretty much all Washington businesses with employees are required to pay unemployment insurance. Often, this process is two-fold; a business must complete both a quarterly tax report and a wage detail. In Washington, these forms work together to produce essential payment amounts and other tax-related data. While the quarterly tax report includes business-wide financial information, such as gross wages, taxable wages, and excess wages, Form 5208B—the WA Wage Detail Report—requires individual data for each employee. This includes full names, Social Security Numbers, total hours worked, and total wages paid in the specific quarter.

For many small businesses, Form 5208B is a hassle. Though you may only have a handful of employees, payroll reporting and processing is often one of the first responsibilities to suffer when caught up in other small business-related tasks. As a result, you may not have the information needed to complete Form 5208B, meaning the process is likely to be long and tedious. Plus, employers must complete this set of forms quarterly, only adding to the difficulty of reporting.

Rather than spending valuable time and resources manually recording every payroll calculation and transaction, our software will handle the difficult part for you. With a built-in data storage feature and easy export options, AMS Payroll has what you need to streamline your small business’s finances.
