Overview Video

A simple, affordable payroll that helps small businesses pay their employees in three easy steps.

With our secure online payroll system, paying your employees has never been easier. First, we’ll help you get started by setting up your payroll, employees, payroll tax information, etc. If you’ve run prior payrolls earlier in the year, we’ll help you input that historical data too...just so that you have a clean starting point!

Once you’re setup, you simply enter your employees’ work hours, and let our payroll software calculate your payroll for you instantly. Go ahead and run your payroll as often as you’d like. You can instantly print paychecks for your employees (using pre-printed paychecks or blank checkstock), or you can pay them via direct deposit (it’s free).

Lastly, we provide you with all of the necessary data you’ll need to deposit and file your own payroll taxes.

Payroll taxes simply can't get any easier, because you'll never have to worry about them again.

Everything in our Basic Online Payroll is included in Full-Service Payroll. You simply enter your employees’ work hours and calculate your payroll. Print your paychecks instantly, or pay your employees with our free direct deposit.

With Full-Service Payroll, we handle all aspects of depositing and filing your federal, state, and local payroll taxes for you. We determine which payroll taxes are necessary for your business. Don‘t worry about payroll tax filing deadlines. We guarantee to file and remit your payroll taxes on time. Plus, we handle any correspondence with government tax agencies. Patriot does not handle the Schedule H (nanny tax).

While 99% of our customers have employees in one state, you can run payroll in other states for an additional $12 per month, per state.
