S corp payroll taxes

Any S corp business owner can tell you S corp payroll taxes are complicated. This is why QuickBooks’ tax penalty protection is so important. Even if you experience errors that lead to tax penalties, QuickBooks can resolve those errors and reimburse penalties and interest.

Set up payroll for your S corp

S corps are unique because even if you’re the owner and sole employee of your business, you must pay yourself “reasonable compensation.” You also have to prove you paid that income with a Form W-2 at the end of the year. QuickBooks makes that easy, with automated tax payments and filings for federal and state payroll taxes.**
