Will Patriot file my company’s taxes and W-2s this year?

If you are a Full Service Payroll customer and you have completed your tax filing setup, Patriot will file your federal, state, and local taxes (if applicable). Patriot will also send W-2s to the SSA and any states requiring year-end W-2 reconciliation filings on your behalf. You can find the filing confirmation number by going to Reports > Payroll Tax Reports > Tax Filings.  If you are a Basic Payroll customer, you will need to file your W-2s yourself. 

If you are a Basic customer, also check out the help article Filing Your W-3.

To find out if you are a Full Service Payroll Customer, go to Settings > Company Settings> Add or Remove Software. If you have completed your tax filing setup, Patriot will have begun collecting payroll taxes with each payroll you have run. If you have not completed your tax filing setup, you will see reminders that you have not completed your tax filing setup when you log in, on the payroll overview page, and on step 2 of running payroll.

Please note: Patriot does NOT mail W-2s to employees on your behalf. You will need to create your W-2s for employees. Go to Reports > Payroll Tax Reports > W-2 Forms.  To watch a step-by-step video, see the help article How to Download and Print W-2 Forms.

For more details on posting electronic W-2s to employee portals, see Posting Electronic W-2s in Patriot’s Employee Portal.
