    I want to bring in a few employees this year and as a last resort I have a local agency to use. However, if I hire directly, I can save a little of my cost. My question is about the needed w2 and pertaining forms I have fill out for the employee, can a cpa handle all of this? Is this the correct person to speak with? I know I withhold money from each check from the employee, but does that go into an interest only savings? Is that my money until I have to pay the tax man?

    I guess is the cpa the person to speak with on this or is there anyone else involved?

    its yours till you have to pay it. Just get the forms and publications from the irs. Its very simple to do if you can read and know how to use a calculator.
