Payroll Tax Returns and Payments

So, you've identified the workers for whom you have payroll tax obligations, determined their taxable wages, and computed how much you owe of each of the different payroll taxes. What next?

When you hire your first employee, you'll also need to register with the IRS and, perhaps, your state and local tax agencies. In addition to assigning you an employer identification number for use on all your correspondence, deposits, returns, and other documents, the tax agencies will usually supply you with information about your specific payroll tax obligations and with the forms you'll need to use when you deposit the taxes and file returns.
