Gusto Payroll is a company that provides a cloud-based payroll, benefits, and human resource management software for businesses. They handle payments to employees and contractors and every time you run payroll they will calculate your taxes and file them with the right government agencies.
As part of the core payroll product, Gusto offers employee onboarding (work authorization forms, direct deposit forms, employee information aggregation). Separately, Gusto offers employee health insurance, dental insurance, and vision insurance enrollment and administration.
Gusto is cheaper and MUCH BETTER than any payroll processing company we have ever used. The best part is that you can run as many payrolls during the month and it doesn’t cost you any more! Missed your cut off? Its ok they won’t penalize you! Need help managing your employees time off? No problem its included! Want a better onboarding for your employees? Gusto works like many other payroll platforms where they not only help you pay your employees but they also remit your taxes and file your payroll tax returns. They guarantee as long as you have the money available for them to withdrawal that you will never have to worry about your tax filing requirements!

For the Employer:
We need a copy of your SS-4 Letter (EIN Letter or Letter 147C). If you have lost your EIN Verification Letter from the Department of Treasury, you can request a new one. To do so, call the IRS Business & Specialty Tax Line toll free at 1-800-829-4933 between the hours of 7am and 7pm in your local time zone. Request a 147C Letter when you speak with the agent on the phone. It is best if you have them fax a copy to you. If you don’t have a fax number you can use your welcome to have it faxed to us at 480-354-1041 and we will load it to your portal.
For the Employees:
We would need to know their Legal Name, Compensation Amount, and Email Address. They will go in an complete the rest of their setup! If they need any help they are always welcome to reach out to us or of course come to you with questions! It is important that you do not help them fill out or answer their Form W-4 or A-4, you should direct them to their tax professional.
