Important Year-End Items To Remember
Year-end is rapidly approaching and now is the time to make sure you have everything prepared.

Remember these key year-end items:
  1. Make sure you order or purchase the correct W-2/1099 forms.
  2. We recommend you complete a pre run of your W2s in early December to make sure you have the correct forms and reconcile payroll information verifying that W2s are correct.
  3. It is critical to back up your data.  When completing back ups at the end of the year, back up after the last payroll and save.  Also, back up before closing the payroll year and restore this back up (archive) to a new id such as PR2015.
If you have year-end questions or need assistance, contact Mary Hildinger at or 260-423-2414.
