    Do any of you use Intuit's payroll service? I was thinking doing the 28$ monthly payroll solution which does everything but local tax documents, which I would let my accountant handle.

    Thank I read some reviews online that made Intuits payroll look scary as all hell.

    Any of you use it to pay your guys?

    You use the 79$ a month option then. I think I'm going to go with it. My accountant wanted 1,000 a year almost to do payroll. Yuck

    How much is it going to cost you to figure state taxes out?

    The accountant is 1,000$ per year just for myself and one other employee. $50 an hour, which can get expensive depending on employees I would imagine.

    Quickbooks does federal and state, leaving local for me.

    In honesty I don't know. I'm trying to figure out the best priced based solution for me. My current thought is to use intiut for 28$ and have accountant do local & WC with holding, I think breaking it up will save me in the long run. Accountant do $90 an hour for payroll services, they would me it would take about an hour a month for everything with 2 employees, local only with WC paperwork for 2 about 15 - 30 minutes a month.

    I don't know, first year doing everything legit. Confused at times.

    Maybe you should shop around. The local company I use is $65 a month, 8 months a year. They do literally everything, including issue ing the checks. All I have to do is submit employee hours on friday, and record their pay, state and federal debits, which all come in a nice report from the payroll company.
