You should be filing estimated tax returns federal and state. If you have an accountant that can be done through the accountant who can give you the payment information or handle it for you. Many such companies also pay payroll taxes quarterly. I hope that is fast and clear. Kindly let me know

I'd prefer to handle it my self. I know there is the Employment security department, Labor & Industry, Department of Revenue, UI Web Tax. I guess my question is do I have to file with all of these people since I'm a sole proprietorship
Business Lawyer: Infolawyer, Attorney replied 10 months ago

if not employing anyone, dont need UI. otherwise, all of the above would apply.

Including L &I since I'm not paying workers comp on my self?
Business Lawyer: Infolawyer, Attorney replied 10 months ago

Most companies file though a payroll company or accountant, but you can do it yourself if you wish.

Happy new year.

Kindly let me know if that is fast and clear.

No L&I.
