As you know, many states change their SUTA wage base and adjust individual client rates every year. So if you process payroll, now is a great time to check the 2014 SUTA rates for your clients’ states. Many states enable you to look up 2014 rates online, and some no longer send printed rate changes. Using the wrong rates to file can cause incorrect payments and penalty and interest charges, so be sure to get the latest information before you file.
If your firm uses Accounting CS, you can include the Payroll Form & Filing Information portlet on the Home Dashboard. This portlet displays information dynamically and makes it easy to navigate among federal, state, and local tax information. The Payroll Form & Filing Information portlet provides status, availability, and filing methods for all supported payroll tax forms, and it also provides information regarding form due dates, form filing addresses, tax payments (for all tax types), agency contacts, and new hires. Simply click a state on the map to view a summary of form information for that state, including approval status.
