QuickBooks Payroll and the HIRE Act

Do you have an employee you have hired after February 3 and before January 1, 2011? You may be eligible to save the employer share of social security taxes (6.2%) on wages paid March 19th through December 31st 2010 if the person you hire can sign an affidavit
(Form W-11) stating they have not worked more than 40 hours during the 60 days before beginning employment with that employer.

Qualified Employee: New Employee has worked less than 40 hours in the previous 60 days
Eligible Job Position- any new job position where the opening was created as a result of new position or  internal promotion.
It does not apply on employees who are hired to replace an existing worker (unless that worker voluntarily left employment or was terminated for cause).

Many small businesses are just becoming aware of the tax savings as they file the newly revised Form 941, which means you may receive a refund on your 1st or 2nd QTR 941 form. To set up your QuickBooks payroll so that you do not not remit the employer portion of Social Security taxes for the third and 4th quarters follow the instructions below from within  your QuickBooks.
