** This article was originally sent to our Bennett/Porter clients via email on 4/9/2020 **

There has been no shortage of information in the last couple of weeks regarding COVID-19 and the Federal mandate about paying employees who are sick with the virus, have been ordered to stay home to self-quarantine, or have a family member who is affected by the virus and who the employee must take care of. Despite all of the information, there are still many outstanding questions employers are encountering as they administer the processes around this mandate.

COVID-19 HR Update: Unemployment Benefits and Taxes

Posted by Christy Putnam on March 24, 2020 at 2:44 PM

Who is dreaming about the days of getting back to a normal version of crazy? You know, kids back in school, too many scheduled social gatherings, a day packed with back-to-back in-person meetings, watercooler talk with co-workers, sporting events to cheer at, too many toilet paper options at the grocery store, and bumper-to-bumper traffic in the morning and afternoon. Okay, maybe not so much the traffic.

These are definitely uncharted times that we are going through. It’s such a strange feeling to take that pause that keeps our family members, friends, co-workers, and even total strangers a little safer by staying distant from them.

What's new with the new W-4?

Posted by Heidi on October 30, 2019 at 12:48 PM

Oh no! The IRS is changing the W-4! While the final version of the form isn't expected until November, the current draft gives us a good idea of what employers and employees will begin using starting in 2020.

What does this mean for my employees and the taxes they pay (because you know they're going to ask you those questions)? Taxes, payroll, the IRS, their forms, and everything associated with these requirements can all seem so confusing and stressful to employees. These things are often referred to as “adulting” because they bring with them anxiety and fear, and they seem to encourage avoidance. In reality, the changes aren't as daunting as they seem. Here's an overview of what you should know when your employees ask.

A Refresher: Transferring Your Oregon Transit Tax Information from Sage 100 to the State

Posted by James on April 1, 2019 at 9:22 AM

It's quarter end again, which means - among many other tasks - that it's time for Oregon employers to submit reports to the state for the Oregon Statewide Transit Tax. For Sage 100 Payroll users, we previously provided a method for storing Oregon Statewide Transit Tax information in Sage 100 Payroll. Subsequently, we developed a process and a pair of Crystal Reports that can be installed in Sage 100 for getting the information out of the Sage 100 Payroll module so that it can be transferred to the State of Oregon via Revenue Online, the Oregon Department of Revenue's site for tax reporting and payment. Since this process is done only quarterly, we thought refreshing your memories with the steps might be welcome. Those are below.

How to Transfer Your Oregon Transit Tax Information from Sage 100 to the State

Posted by James on October 5, 2018 at 2:46 PM

In June, we provided a method for collecting your Oregon Statewide Transit Tax information in Sage 100 Payroll. This approach involved storing the tax collection data in Sage's State of Oregon 'Employee SDI' field, since the State of Oregon doesn't have SDI tax. Now it's time to submit reports to the state for this tax, and you'll need to get the information out of the Sage 100 Payroll module so that it can be transferred to the state via Revenue Online, the Oregon Department of Revenue's site for tax reporting and payment. We've come up with a way to make this process as easy as possible.
