Authorize QuickBooks as your Maryland unemployment Third Party Agent

SOLVEDby QuickBooks480Updated December 15, 2023

Maryland has implemented a new Third Party Administrator (TPA) process. When you set up your new payroll service, or when you add a new employee in Maryland, you need to authorize us as your payroll agent with the state so we can pay and file unemployment taxes on your behalf.

For additional support, check out these videos from the Maryland Department of Labor.

Note: Not sure which payroll service you have? Here's how to find your payroll service.

To authorize QuickBooks as your payroll agent:

Complete the Power of Attorney (POA) Authorization form for Maryland. Add the following info in the Reporting Agent section:

  • Name of Reporting Agent:
    • QuickBooks Online Payroll: PayCycle Inc.
    • QuickBooks Desktop Payroll Assisted: COMPUTING RESOURCES INC

  1. Sign in to your Maryland Unemployment Insurance account.
  2. Select Account Maintenance.

      • Agent Name: PayCycle Inc.
    • QuickBooks Desktop Payroll Assisted:
