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:
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)!
