Some debts, such as taxes (including payroll taxes, most student loans and unpaid wages) are not forgiven in bankruptcy even if you file, and will not be discharged even if yo…u are given bankruptcy relief of your other debts. And being in arrears in taxes may bar you from getting any bankruptcy relief at all . Talk to an attorney as soon as possible.
Payroll is calculated by taking how many hours the employee worked and multiplying it by how much the employee gets paid per hour. Any money being withheld for taxes, insuranc…e, retirement plans, etc should be subtracted from the employees pay. Most electronic time clocks that monitor when employees check in and out can be connected with payroll software to automatically calculate the payroll based on the employee's time worked.

A payroll is, in layman's terms, the out goings a company has to spend on its staff or human resources. These are often very complicated and difficult to figure out due to fac…tors such as staff illness, holiday pay and leaves of absence. It is important to make sure your pay roll is correctly administered as payroll's are used to help figure out company and personal taxes. Inability to keep these records properly can lead to big fines.
If you owe payroll taxes to the IRS and are unable to pay the full amount you have a few options and it is also based on whether or not your company is still in operatio…n. If the business is still in operation then you should be able to work out some type of an installment agreement with the IRS. The IRS will first check to make sure the business is current on its monthly tax payroll tax deposits. Next, the IRS will analyze the business's cash flow to determine the business's ability to make a tax installment sufficient to repay the liability. If there is sufficient cash flow then an agreement can be worked out. If not, then the IRS may shut the business down. If the business is shut down then the payroll tax liability will be assigned to the owner's of the business personally. If this happens then there is a greater degree of flexibility in negotiating the liability. The taxpayer has several options at this point and it is usually best to consult a tax professional to review which option is best.
Payroll taxes generally fall into two categories: deductions from an employee's wages and taxes paid by the employer based on the employee's wages. The first kind are taxes th…at employers are required to withhold from employees' wages, also known as withholding tax, pay-as-you-earn tax(PAYE), or pay-as-you-go tax (PAYG) and often covering advance payment of income tax, social security contributions, and various insurances (e.g., unemployment and disability). The second kind is a tax that is paid from the employer's own funds and that is directly related to employing a worker. These can consist of fixed charges or be proportionally linked to an employee's pay. The charges paid by the employer usually cover the employer's funding of the social security system, and other insurance programs.

Payroll In a functional accounting sense, "payroll" consists of an employer's activities related to the compensation it pays to its employees (payroll accounting, payroll tax… return preparation, benefits administration). However, the term "payroll" is also used broadly to refer to the dollar amount of an employer's liability for cash wages he must pay to his employees (as in "my company's total annual payroll is $100,000.") In this sense "payroll" refers to the employee compensation expense of a business. Payroll for a given employee is calculated as follows: 1. Start with Gross Pay For a salaried employee, gross pay equals the employee's flat salary per pay period. For an hourly employee, gross pay equals the number of hours worked multiplied by his hourly rate. If the employee works overtime, or has more than one hourly rate, multiply the applicable hours by those special rates. 2. Subtract deductions from gross pay to arrive at the employee's net pay. Some major deductions are: Income taxes - Federal, State and Local, if applicable (also called "withholding taxes") Social Security and Medicare tax Employee contributions to the state's unemployment or worker's compensation fund (if applicable) Deductions for employee benefits (Medical/401(k) plan contributions, etc.) Wage garnishments (often calculated as a percentage of gross salary) 3. After all deductions have been made, the amount left over is the employee's net pay. This process is easily automated, and there are a variety of software packages to handle payroll processing. There are also "widgets" and free websites that can be used in a pinch to calculate employee paychecks. Large companies will usually want to use payroll service bureaus, such as ADP. They can also handle the various payroll tax reporting and deposit requirements, which can be quite complex. There are different models for forecasting future payroll expense, but the simplest way is to multiply expected average headcount for the future period by the current average compensation rate, and then multiply the product by the average percent wage increase to be effective in the future period. But this assumes that the range of salaries is fairly evenly distributed among the current employees, and that future headcount will reflect a similar salary distribution range.
You can elect for either under most plans...butit is virtually always done as a contribution BEFORE tax, and not included in yoiur current earnings. That is in fact one …of the big benefits..your 401k contributions aren't taxed going in...they arent' taxed while they grow...and only when you start to withdraw them on retirement, is what you take out taxed.
The best software to use is MS-Office Worksheet, which is efficient and helpful. But a bigger company might use more-advanced and more-specific software. There are many p…ayroll programs available, so the "best" one depends on your individual business. If you only have a few employees and want a low cost solution, a spreadsheet may work just fine. If you want something more powerful that writes paychecks, prepares payroll tax returns and documents and integrates with your accounting records, you might select something like Quickbooks. Many companies use outside payroll services that provide additional HR reports.
Answer The employer portion of the payroll taxes is computed by multiplying the gross wage by the appropriate percentage assigned to that tax. For example, the social s…ecurity percentage would be 6.2% each for the employer and the employee. Medicare would be 1.45% for each. Your state/county will each have their own percentages. Answer 1. The employer pays one half of the FICA taxes at 7.65% (Medicare is 1.45% - OASDI is 6.2%) 2. The employer pays Federal Unemployment Tax (FUTA) which is calculated at .8% of the first $7000 of employee wages - works out to $56 per employee per year if they make over $7000.00. 3. The employer pays State Unemployment Taxes - rates and amount vary by State. The remaineder of the taxes are withheld from the emplyees paychecks.
