Fingercheck requires that all clients register for state and local payroll tax accounts, where they are required to make payments. Employers are responsible for paying all payroll taxes, including the employees’ portion withheld from their paychecks.

This article will provide you with Fingercheck's tax requirements for Alaska and will include sections for payroll tax facts and supported filings. The payroll tax facts section gives more details about Alaska.

The tax ID format will list examples of accepted tax IDs that can be entered in Fingercheck for successful payroll filings.

The new employer rate is the rate that the state assigns to employers who sign up for a brand-new unemployment account. We are also providing the range of unemployment rates the state can assign to a single employer.

The unemployment wage base is the wage limit on employee taxable wages paid during the calendar year that employers are required to calculate and pay unemployment taxes.

The minimum wage is the minimum wage employees should be paid.

The supported filings section provides more details about the unemployment and withholding filings supported by Fingercheck, in addition to details about withholding tax frequencies and new hire reporting.
