  • Added. Draft copy of Forms 944 and 944-V as of June 4, 2024. Form 944 returns to a two (2) page form for 2024, since all of the covid-19 era relief has either expired or is no longer applicable.

  • Added. Forms W-2 eFile support. The EFW2 Module will make it possible for users to setup a submitter information and the creation of an EFW2 text file which conforms to the Social Security Administration's (SSA), rules and specifications (per Publication 42-007), which can then be uploaded to the Business Online Services (BSO). A Login.gov or ID.me account must be setup prior to setting up an account with the BSO. Once you have setup an account with Login.gov or ID.me, navigate to www.ssa.gov/bso and setup an employer account.

    Countless hours of development, designing, programming and testing went into the EFW2 Module to make suitable for it's intended operation. Although this new module is a part of PayCalc, an additional user registration number will be required to access it. We are offering the EFW2 Module at an introductory price of $149 USD.
