Our Tax Work Location option has now been upgraded with a new option, specifically so that you can add a tax work location for remote employees. You can now select the “Use Home Location” or (once enabled by a support rep), the “Employee Works From Home” option.

But let’s actually get into how this is done (there are two ways), so you understand what we are talking about:


Existing Employees:

  • For starters, navigate into the employee's profile through the Employee tab on the left-hand side of your Fingercheck portal.

  • You will then go into the employee's profile, and navigate into the "Payroll" section, and we will go into the "Taxes" sub-section. (Employee profile > Payroll > Taxes)

  • Once you're inside the "Taxes" sub-section, you'll see a pencil icon on the right-hand side of the "Tax Work Location:" text.

    • You're going to click on this pencil icon and select the "Use Home Location" check box within the window that has popped up! Boom!


  • Now, that we have covered this, it is important to mention that this option is also available when onboarding an employee but can only be executed once a support representative has enabled the updated onboarding features.


Once activated by a member of our support team, the option will show up within the onboarding process, as shown below:


Once the tax work location has been set to the employees remote location, you will receive an e-mail confirming this change made. The email will require you to:

  • Ensure your status for registration is completed for both local & state taxes

  • Submit documents for local & state to Fingercheck

The e-mail will go into further detail on all the steps, but please be on the lookout for said e-mail once you have completed the steps above and successfully added a tax work location for your remote employee(s)!
