Many employers hire third-party payroll service providers to perform their payroll processing functions and tax-related duties, including making employment tax deposits.

Watch to learn about:

  • Using an EFTPS Inquiry PIN to monitor tax deposits
  • The benefits of creating a separate EFTPS account
  • Setting up EFTPS notifications

The employer, generally, remains liable for any unpaid employment taxes, including any penalties and interest resulting from any underpayment, even if they use a third-party payroll service provider. Note, this may not apply to employers using Certified Professional Employer Organizations (CPEO).
