Step 3: Set Up Federal Taxes

We handle all of your company’s federal tax payments and filings automatically. You don’t have to do a thing.

What’s your Federal EIN?

If you have your federal tax info handy, this step only only takes a couple minutes. Beginning with your first payroll, Gusto electronically files all of your federal taxes. No more paper forms or missed deadlines. We’ll also issue and file your W-2s and 1099s. We never charge extra for these services.

Here’s what you’ll need:

Federal EIN

Your company’s unique identification number. If you don’t have one you can apply online.

Company Type

What type of company do you have? We support every option, including C-Corp, S-Corp, LLC and many more.

Deposit schedule

Let us know your federal deposit schedule and if you use a 941 or 944 filing form. Don’t know? Contact the IRS to find out.

Once you’ve entered this info, we’ll take care of everything else, including automatically filing and paying your federal taxes. Once you’ve run payroll, we’ll even call the IRS on your behalf if needed.
