Intuit Online Payroll
Intuit has announced plans to extend its web-based Online Payroll service to Mac users, with support for Safari and integration with QuickBooks for Mac. Earnings, payroll taxes and deductions are all automatically calculated after entering an employee's hours, with options to either print paychecks from a local printer or pay via Direct Deposit.
The service can also be used to determine federal and state payroll taxes, with automatic payment reminders and balance tracking. The company communicates directly with tax authorities to stay current with any changes in tax rates. Users can make payments using checks, while E-Pay can also be used without incurring extra fees.
Small businesses can print federal and state payroll tax forms directly from the interface, or E-File forms for a many states. Users can also receive e-mail reminders of the payment and form submission deadlines.
Intuit Online Payroll for Mac is scheduled for availability sometime in the fall. Customers can sign up free for six months, and then pay $10 a month after that.
