What is the likely cause of the notice?
Our experience shows that the most common issues that result in the generation of a payroll tax notice include:
- Incorrect payroll data provided during account setup
- Payroll tax rate changes from local, state or federal agencies that are not communicated to BenefitMall
- Payroll tax payment frequency does not comply with federal, state or local requirements
Once the reason for the notice is resolved, BenefitMall will communicate with you the outcome and next steps. If the reason for the notice is due to a mistake on BenefitMall’s part, we will take responsibility for paying all penalties or interest.
