Franchise tax filling and annual reports
Franchise taxes and annual reports are key compliance requirements for companies that do business in the United States.
Franchise taxes are state taxes charged to companies that operate in that state. You might think that this tax only applies to franchises, but it's imposed on all businesses that operate in the state.
Annual reports provide a snapshot of your business operations as well as any changes that occurred in the previous year. The specific requirements vary from state to state but most annual reports contain similar information.
Lastly, with the Payroll plan which is $599 yearly, you'll get the following:
Payroll Tax Registration
Employees generally pay taxes in the state where they work, even if the business mostly operates in another location. Income tax and other taxes vary from one state to another. This means that you'll need to adjust your tax withholding practices as you hire more employees who work in other states.
We're thrilled to make sure you get your Agent change right! and that you take advantage of our new plans so your company can meet its goals easily, securely, and most importantly, on time.
