As a business owner that does payroll manually (not with Quickbooks

This answer was rated:

As a business owner that does payroll manually (not with Quickbooks or other payroll software) what is the best (most efficient and reliable) method to stay up-to-date on the FEDERAL tax rates.

USTaxAdvising :

Hello, Thank you for using justanswer. I can assist you with your questions today.

USTaxAdvising :

The best place is going to be publication 15 - http://www.irs.gov/publications/p15/ar02.html

USTaxAdvising :

But this won't really be updated as quickly as one would hope so I would also recommend subscribing to "e-news for Payroll Providers," see link here - http://www.irs.gov/Businesses/Small-Businesses-&-Self-Employed/e-News-for-Payroll-Providers

Customer:

OK, I review publication 15, and I have already subscribed to e-new for Payroll Providers, so I should be all set?

USTaxAdvising :

I would think so yes. This would ensure you have been alerted to any tax law changes and potential changes to withholding tables.

USTaxAdvising :

You should also periodically check the Form 941 instructions online to see if there are any changes.

Customer:

Great! Thanks for your help. And I'll remember to rate your services accordingly :).
