    Holy S there is a lot of paperwork for the state and feds that goes along with it. What a headache!

    Anyone have any thoughts they want to share about this process?

    i have a local payroll company do it. All I do is call in the hours, then log on to their website the next day and print out a .pdf file of the check on to check stock paper they supplied me with. The price is so low it's worth it (can't remember exact price on the top of my head). I'd rather pay the small amount total per year to save the headache and get it done right.

    I agree with higlander..I hired employees last season and i got a payroll company..much easier. Any questions my acct has she calls them or they set me up with a webpage that she has full access too and there she has it. Mine is only a little under 36.00, thats on a weekly basis and they print and send the checks, or direct deposit if thats what the employee desires..which is easier. I use Paychex...hasn't been to bad.
