The AMS Payroll Solution for Pesky L-1 Forms

Quarterly taxes can be a nuisance for employers and accountants. This is especially true of those filing the L-1 Form in Louisiana. Unfortunately, this applies to nearly everyone; every employer who withholds, or who is required to withhold Louisiana income tax and wages from employees, must file a quarterly L-1 return. Though short and requiring basic information, the Louisiana Withholding Tax form depends on strict bookkeeping and accurate numbers. Additionally, adjustments for prior quarters cannot be made within the current quarter, meaning employers must later file amended returns for all quarters with all necessary corrections. If you make a mistake on a Q1 L-1 Form, you’ll have to account for your mistakes months later—this can be a tedious process.

If you’ve struggled with the L-1 Form in the past, now is the time to change the process. Advanced Micro Solutions has an answer for everything related to taxes—federal, state, and local. Our line of software is designed to target the issues tax preparers experience with popular forms. When you choose AMS, your tax and wage reporting becomes streamlined, accurate, and easy.

The Software Perfect for Your L-1 Form

The L-1 Form does not require information on individual employees. Rather, employers and accountants must report the total amount of state withholding tax collected for each month of the quarter. This means that, unlike other forms, you don’t need to integrate tax preparation with your payroll system; you can simply prepare the form using monthly reports.

If you need Louisiana Withholding Tax Form support, our Forms Filer Plus is the perfect product to suit your needs. The software allows you to prepare payroll-related forms without setting up an entirely new process within your payroll system.

However, if you feel that your current payroll system is inadequate or prone to inaccuracies, you should consider adding AMS Payroll Software to your list. This comprehensive system generates and stores necessary payroll-related data. This streamlines your quarterly and end-of-year reporting. The best part? Forms Filer Plus and AMS Payroll are compatible with one another, meaning you can integrate both to create the tax and wage software to fit your business.
