Will Zenefits Payroll file and pay my taxes

Yes. As long as you've provided the right Tax IDs, Zenefits Payroll will do the rest. The Powers of Attorney forms that were signed during setup authorize Zenefits Payroll to file on behalf of the company, so you don't need to sign returns before they're filed.

However, some companies may need to take an extra step or two:

  • Those who pay employees in one of the states on this list should authorize Zenefits Payroll as a third-party administrator (TPA) to allow Zenefits Payroll to file and pay their taxes.
  • Those who haven't yet provided tax IDs in each state where Zenefits Payroll needs to pay and file their taxes will need to do so or they will remain on Calculate Only. See these instructions for adding tax IDs in Zenefits.
  • If you have recently registered in a new state and want Zenefits to handle tax filing in this state, follow the instructions here to add a new state to Zenefits Payroll.

If any of these cases applies to you, make sure to follow the relevant instructions. Otherwise, Zenefits Payroll may not be able to pay or file your taxes. More information about tax levels of service
