AMS is Perfect for Illinois Income Tax Withholding

Illinois income tax withholding is a notably tricky process. IL-941 is extensive, requiring information ranging from employee numbers to the exact amount of Illinois Income Tax withheld daily. The process requires an updated database of paid wages and taxes, as well as accurate calculations for each day’s cost. However, streamlining the Illinois income tax withholding process is easier than you might think—payroll software with built-in filing is the perfect solution.

Advanced Micro Solutions has the product you need for Illinois income tax withholding. AMS Payroll Software, one of our most popular programs, allows for payroll and other 1099 information to be entered throughout the year. By incorporating a filer, all essential data is easily transferred to state and federal quarterly unemployment forms and end-of-year W2 and 1099s. We have the solution you need for an easier Illinois income tax withholding process.
