Editor's Note
One of the topics accountants start thinking about when the busy season is over is payroll tax. How can next year's payroll tax processing be done more efficiently? What can businesses do now to improve their reporting next January? What tips can accountants provide to businesses that are just getting started? How does new legislation affect payroll taxes? What happens if a business doesn't pay its payroll taxes properly? The articles presented in this
e-newsletter address those issues. As always, we welcome your comments, input, and feedback. Simply click the Post Comments option at the bottom of any article.

Best regards,
