It’s Tax Season! A Responsive PEO Partner Makes It Painless

Tax Season scrabble letters on top of Integrity Employee Leasing tax paperwork

Tired of speaking to an automated machine and waiting days for a phone call back? April brings the end of tax season, one of the most stressful seasons for any business owner or HR manager. Tax deadlines impose a strict timeline for employee withholding, reporting and payment. The time it takes – not to mention the stress associated – for processing paperwork, crunching numbers and answering employee questions – can easily overwhelm a busy professional’s daily workflow and keep them from their highest priority: running a successful business.

But what if April didn’t have to be so stressful? What if there was an experienced, credentialed accounting and HR team who could handle the headache of paperwork, responsibly completing taxes on your behalf? What if your employees had the ability to call and speak directly to an informed representative regarding their W-2 questions or concerns? What if you had a company who proactively monitored regulatory changes and ensured compliance, while helping you take advantage of any possible opportunities for tax savings?

Having a capable, responsive professional employer organization (PEO) as your partner can eliminate the headache that comes with tax season. While PEOs offer many useful services, such as HR, payroll and employee benefits, it’s the ability to manage tax administration for your business that can bring relief to business owners and HR managers in April.

Here’s How Your PEO Partner Makes Tax Season Easier

Wondering how your PEO partner makes tax season easier? For tax purposes, they are contractually named as your co-employer. While you remain at the helm of your business, making all decisions to manage and operate your company, the PEO shares the responsibility and liability for employment-related issues. This includes the remittance of payroll and employment taxes, safety and compliance, employment records, and possibly even workers’ compensation.

During tax season, it will be a welcome relief for business owners and HR managers. A PEO like Integrity Employee Leasing can provide employment benefits and resources that businesses would not otherwise be able to access, such as discounted group insurance plans. According to the National Association of Professional Employer Organizations (NAPEO), a PEO arrangement is the only opportunity for a worker at a small company to receive Fortune 500-quality employee benefits:

  • Health insurance
  • Dental and vision care
  • Life insurance
  • Retirement saving plans
  • Job counseling
  • Adoption assistance
  • Educational benefits
