All new companies must register their businesses with their state tax agencies before processing their first payroll. Also, if you have employees working in multiple states or a new state, you must register with each state separately. Once registered, you will receive a tax account number that will allow Fingercheck to withhold payroll taxes, file your tax forms, and make tax payments on your behalf.

State payroll taxes and IDs

State payroll taxes and state tax IDs are legal requirements for hiring and paying employees in the United States. All small businesses must track and report all payroll taxes to avoid government audits and fines. CorpNet can help your business register for your State Tax account, which will save you time in researching state requirements, filing paperwork, and dealing with your state’s administration office. In cooperation with Fingercheck, CorpNet can quickly register your new business for state payroll taxes. CorpNet’s specialists manage the process of registering your new business for State Unemployment Insurance Tax (SUI) and State Income Tax (SIT), allowing you to pay your employees easily.

There are two ways to register for your State Tax ID. You can register through our trusted partner, CorpNet to help ensure that your paperwork and filings are legally compliant, or file yourself. CorpNet automates and processes the State Tax Registration on your behalf.
