The stimulus package that was just signed into law includes a number of tax credits for small and midsize companies. Now Intuit Payroll aims to make sure smaller-business employees receive the maximum tax benefits they're entitled to.A lot of tax changes have occurred this year. In particular, the recently enacted stimulus bill added, extended, and enhanced tax breaks for small and midsize companies. It's a lot for a smaller business to take in.

And on the flip-side, not being aware of all the changes can mean employees will miss out on tax benefits.

  • It also updates several tax forms, such as Form 941, the Employer's Quarterly Federal Tax Form, for reporting new COBRA premium assistance payments.
  • Finally, employers can check out the latest changes that affect payroll at www.usepayroll.com/stimulus.

Intuit Basic Payroll costs as little as $100 per year.
