How to preview payroll

  1. Log in to Fingercheck as an Administrator.

  2. Click the Payroll tab.

  3. Click Run Payroll.

    Within the window, a breakdown of your payroll is organized on a grid.

    • Employer Contributions and Taxes Paid by the Employer, including the employer's share of Medicare and Social Security, FUTA and SUTA

    • Direct Deposit Details

    • Deductions

    • Net Pay
