The L-3 Form is No Match for AMS Payroll Software

If you filing and reporting your Louisiana taxes and wages, you are likely searching for a streamlining solution. This is especially true for preparers working on the L-3 Form—the Louisiana Annual Withholding Form. Though the process is relatively straightforward, it necessitates strict bookkeeping and accurate reporting.

Additionally, filers should note that as of January 1, 2016, if your business has filed 50 or more information returns, you must file the L-3 Form, W-2, W-2G, and 1099 forms electronically. If you are required to file online but fail to do so, you will likely incur a penalty. However, if you would like to review the form, you can do so at the Louisiana Department of Revenue’s website.

If you are tired of filing quarterly and annual Louisiana tax forms, Advanced Micro Solutions has the answer. Our line of software products is designed to expedite your accounting process. We have the perfect solution for the L-3 Form, as well as several other Louisiana-specific forms.

The Perfect Software to Combat the L-3 Form

The L-3 Form requires just a few lines of information. To complete the process, simply fill in information regarding wage and payments withholding and returns for each quarter. This is possible with the use of your L-1 Form. Though you should have this quarterly form on-hand when completing the L-3, employers and accountants do not need to consult extensive payroll databases. This makes our Forms Filer Plus the perfect software candidate for L-3 Form preparation.

The Forms Filer Plus is perfect for those who need to file (manually or electronically) payroll-related forms without setting up employer/employee information in a new payroll system. This basic form filer allows users to enter data directly onto an easy-to-read facsimile of the form on the screen—perfect for your basic L-3 Form needs.

However, employers filing the L-3 Form must also file any W-2 or W-2G that is reporting income taxable to Louisiana, any 1099 form reporting Louisiana income tax withheld, and/or any 1099-MISC where payment is over $1,000 and to a non-resident of the state. Though the L-3 is relatively straightforward, these sibling forms require information that applies to each employee.

If you struggle to report W-2, W-2G, 1099, or 1099 MISC forms accurately and on-time, you should consider investing in AMS Payroll Software , our comprehensive payroll software. This program builds and stores important employee data throughout the year, working to streamline your quarterly and annual tax and wage reporting process—perfect for W-2, W-2G, 1099 software, and 1099 MISC forms. Our Forms Filer Plus and AMS Payroll are compatible, meaning they will work together to create the perfect accounting software for your business.
