Keeping employees happy starts with timely and accurate payroll. Let us take care of it for you.

Payroll taxes are expensive enough; processing fees should not cost you an arm and a leg.

We will take care of you!

Remember, we are business owners ourselves. The first time we hired an employee, we knew we were taking on a huge responsibility, but we knew that to grow we would need help. It was the moment when Backyard Bookkeeper became a true business, not just a job we had created for our selves.

When our first team member joined us, we were lucky because we already knew how to navigate all the rules and forms to file, so running payroll was easy for us. Yes, you read that right, there are a lot of rules to follow! Payroll taxes are nonnegotiable. If you don’t file or pay your income tax, it might take the IRS a couple years to catch up with you. But if you don’t file or pay your payroll tax, it will only take them a couple months to start looking for you, and you will have to pay stiff penalties and interest to resolve your outstanding balance.

We love what we do, and our payroll specialists  enjoy navigating the ins and outs of federal and state payroll regulations. Read below to learn why our service is the best in the market.
