Posted by Brian Terrell on Wed, Jan 28, 2015

Outsourcing payroll processing, payroll tax remitting, and related tax duties to a third party can be a great idea for many companies; however, I encourage our Workforce Go! clients to stay on top of the rules related to third party payer arrangements set by the IRS in section 16 of Circular E, whether they choose to outsource the responsibility or not.
