AMS Payroll Streamlines Idaho Unemployment Insurance

Like every state in the U.S., Idaho has unemployment insurance. This employer-paid tax is entered into the unemployment insurance trust fund, which then provides benefits to unemployed or underemployed workers throughout the state. Within Idaho, however, there are several methods of paying unemployment insurance; the way you pay—and, more importantly, if you pay at all—depends primarily on the type of employment you practice. The process for Idaho unemployment insurance varies for domestic employment, agricultural employment, and general employment.

Unfortunately, if you or your accountant makes a mistake or is late in the Idaho unemployment insurance wage reporting process, a penalty will be assessed. This fee will accrue for each quarter the mistake is not fixed. If you would like more information regarding Idaho unemployment insurance, we recommend scrolling through the Idaho Department of Labor’s helpful information guide.

You may find it hard to trust yourself with such a delicate, exact, and time-sensitive process—especially when you like have additional quarterly reports to file. That’s where AMS can help. We offer a multi-use accounting software perfect for making precise calculations, hosting important data, and performing additional tax and wage-related tasks. If you find yourself dreading the Idaho unemployment insurance tax report (201), this is the product for you.

The Perfect Software for Idaho Unemployment Insurance

If you are seeking a more efficient Idaho UI system, AMS Payroll Software is the product you need. In addition to processing payroll, printing checks, and supporting direct deposit, this software automatically calculates federal, state, and local payroll taxes. Users can electronically file 941, 944, and 940 forms, import/export data to and from a variety of sources, and record necessary deposit and disbursement information.

Moreover, AMS Payroll’s back-end data hosting feature allows you to enter essential employee information. This means employers and HR professionals can utilize the already-existing data—full names, SSNs, gross wages, additions/deductions, &c—to complete necessary filing and reporting. What’s more, most of the forms you need are available on this software—including the Idaho unemployment insurance tax report. Investing in AMS Payroll is the easiest way to build an efficient monthly, quarterly, and annual filing system.

Additional Idaho Support

Our software can help with more than your UI report. In fact, we offer support for several necessary Idaho-specific forms. They are hosted on AMS Payroll and our Forms Filer Plus—two of our most popular products. See our offerings below:
