As in most states, Oklahoma’s W-4 is simple. Filers need to provide personal information, such as filing status and Social Security Number, as well as allowances you are claiming. In Oklahoma, an individual’s withholding allowance is the individual income tax personal exemption, $1,000, divided by the number of payroll periods in the calendar year. To find this number, you will simply need to know how many pay periods you or your employee has worked. However, the Oklahoma State Tax Withholding Form is not that easy.
Two hurdles unite employers and employees working on the Oklahoma State Tax Withholding Form: estimations and calculations. Withholding tax tables can change annually, making it difficult to know even where to begin. This is where a semi-automated payroll system can help.
The Benefits of Using Payroll Software
Payroll software should have functions: payroll calculation and tax and wage filing preparation. Unfortunately, most only provide the payroll calculation portion. Not AMS. Our product, AMS Payroll, includes essential filing preparation, data storage, and semi-automated calculations to ensure you finish your forms quickly every time.
The benefits of using payroll software for the Oklahoma State Tax Withholding Form might not be obvious. This form requires information about payment frequency; if you’re not keeping tabs on how frequently you receive paychecks, you may not know how to calculate your allowance. In using Payroll Software , this responsibility is placed on the software, which hosts information regarding payment frequency, gross wages, and withholding. With us, the Oklahoma State Tax Withholding Form is simple and efficient – as taxes should be.
AMS and Oklahoma Withholding Tables
Oklahoma withholding tables can change annually, but it is up to the filer to look up those shifts. If you’re using a manual payroll software, the information you have might be out of date, and you might forget to look these changes up at the end of the calendar year. This isn’t a problem with AMS Payroll. Instead, our software automatically updates all tax and withholding tables, ensuring you make the accurate calculations every time.
Setting Up AMS
AMS Payroll is part of a suite of add-on products customers can purchase to customize accounting software. Our base software is a W-2/1099 filer, but for help on the Oklahoma State Tax Withholding Form, we recommend AMS Payroll or our Forms Filer Plus. See below for our full catalogue of products.
We understand the hesitancy with which some business owners approach accounting software. Most people who handle accounting and payroll have very specific methods and preferences, and we don’t want to stand in the way of what’s most convenient for your process. That said, we want you to give us a shot. Our software is available online in the form of a free, downloadable demo. This is a great opportunity to see how AMS fits into your current system, as well as how intuitive and user-friendly our software can be. If you have any questions, we recommend calling our Sales and Information team at 800-536-1099.
