Patriot Is Trusted by Tens of Thousands of Businesses to Streamline Their Payroll


One of our biggest concerns of opening a business was needing to employ others and be compliant with all things that are required. Patriot has made that one of the easiest things!! Some simple data entry to set up a new employee and then a few minutes each pay period to enter the hours worked, and Patriot takes care of the rest.

Cardell and Karla McDonald, Show-Me Shaved Ice


We love Patriot Payroll. It’s so easy to use and makes running payroll simple.

Amanda, Bat World Sanctuary


We have three employees, so it takes me a minute to a minute and a half every other Friday to run payroll. That’s a time-saver that I can just not beat. And, it’s a headache I do not have. I’ve done my own payroll before, and I’ll never go back to it!

Michael Gee, Zen Dog Mobile Groom Spa, LLC


I don’t have to spend more than a few minutes every other week to run payroll. I find the platform is easy to use. And, support has been really good any time I’ve had any issues.

Steve Sentner, Paw & Order


We’re very small, so the biggest factor for us was the cost of payroll software. I didn’t want to pay for a big program that we didn’t need and I also do accounting, so Basic Payroll was the perfect fit for us. Overall, the price and the user-friendly website were the big factors for me.

Gail Horn, The Soap Chest


Patriot’s Full Service Payroll makes it easier to handle a lot of our tasks. It makes running payroll a lot simpler, cheaper, and faster for us as a small business.

John Feghali, Toaster Party


Patriot Payroll is so quick and efficient. I get to spend all the time I would be doing reports, writing paychecks, and keeping track of hours; finish my payroll in five minutes; and get back to the work that I can be doing in my business.

Brandon Hartman, Second Time Books


It simplifies the whole process. Where before we were clocking time and trying to keep track in Excel spreadsheets and determine tax liabilities, I just didn’t have time to do that stuff. So, Patriot allows us to log the numbers, and it spits out all the numbers of what we owe per check and for the taxes.

Our Full Payroll Service is perfect for small businesses in the USA and handles all employee taxes and most of the employer taxes, including federal, state and local taxes. We do not handle household employers (Schedule H).

Yes, we file in all 50 states. However, there is a $12 fee for each additional state that we file in.

Patriot collects and files workers' compensation insurance for Washington and Wyoming. For other states, we do offer free integration with AP Intego, who offers Pay-As-You-Go Workers’ Compensation Insurance.

No. While you can set up custom deductions and contributions, Patriot Software, DOES NOT handle the remitting of these funds to the proper agencies at this time.

After you have completed your tax filing setup, Patriot Software will collect payroll taxes on approved payrolls usually the first banking day before the pay date. If payroll is run on the same day as the pay date, payroll taxes will be collected on the next available banking day.
