Happy New Year 2017!

It's here, 2017!  It is time for us payroll professionals to really shine with our knowledge of W2's and other annual tax filings.  Don't forget that January 31st is the filing deadline for BOTH electronic and paper forms W-2. If this date falls on a Saturday, Sunday, or legal holiday, the deadline will be the next business day.

The Social Security Administration has a nice page for Employer W2 Filing Instructions & Information.

AccuWage Online 2016  (This is highly recommended to ensure that your W2 file is in the correct format prior to submitting it)

AccuWage Online is a new internet application that you can access by logging in to your Business Services Online (BSO) account and going to the Employer Wage Reporting (EWR) application home page. Click here to get started using the AccuWage Online 2016 application. For more information, please see the AccuWage Online 2016 Help Guide.

Having trouble receive meeting notifications and other emails from us?

If you are having trouble receiving mail from your organization, a firewall or spam filtering service is likely the cause of the issue. However, you can white list several domains and IP addresses to ensure safe delivery. Depending on your e-mail service, you may be able to do this yourself, or you may need the assistance of your IT administrator. We recommend white listing the following:

  • starchapteremailhost2.com 67.43.2.30
  • hostemail1.starchapterhost.com 209.59.162.85
  • •hostmailbox1.starchapterhost.com 67.43.7.204
  • •hostapp1.starchapterhost.com 67.43.0.3
  • •hostapp2.starchapterhost.com 209.59.143.168
  • •hostapp3.starchapterhost.com 67.225.172.119
  • •hostapp4.starchapterhost.com 209.59.144.126
  • •starchaptermail.com 69.60.117.130
  • •166.78.71.148

 

If these options don't work you can always put a recurring task in your Outlook to sign up for the monthly APA meeting.  This way you can be sure you aren't missing an important topic.  :-)
