Social Security Tax Rate Extension for Employees
On December 23, 2011, President Obama signed into law the Temporary Payroll Tax Cut Continuation Act of 2011 (H.R. 3765). The Act includes a two-month extension of the reduced employee Social Security tax rate, maintaining the employee rate at 4.2% through February 29, 2012.
Intuit QuickBooks Payroll is supporting this change in Payroll Update 21202. For more information, click here.
Important E-File Scheduling Information
E-filing through QuickBooks for Forms 940, 941, and 944 will be available beginning on January 4, 2012. The Social Security Administration is now accepting 2011 W-2s. However, due to high seasonal volume, the SSA may take 6 weeks or more to process your submission and provide updated status information. Do not resend your forms unless the SSA asks you to do so.

Thanks Everyone for Being so Good about your taxes! It's almost time!
