Here’s How it Works

Get Started

Tax Types

State Income Tax/State Withholding Tax

Most states impose a state income tax, which is administered by the state’s Department of Revenue.  State income tax, sometimes also referred to as state withholding tax, is calculated based on the employee’s pay and their state withholding form (or federal W-4 if no state-specific form exists) and withheld from their paycheck.  Employers are then required to remit the money withheld and file tax returns.  Each state dictates how often an employee must file and pay state income tax.  The state will provide the employer’s payment and filing frequency when they provide the employer’s new account information.  This is an employee paid tax.

State Unemployment Tax

This tax is an employer-paid tax which is often administered by the state’s Department of Labor.  Each state has it’s own taxable wage base and assigns employers individual unemployment insurance tax rates based on their industry and rate experience.  Both the taxable wage base and employer unemployment insurance tax rate can change each year.

Local/Municipal/City Taxes

If you live in any of the following states, you may need to register for an additional local, municipal or city tax – Alabama, California, Colorado, Delaware, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Kentucky, Maryland, Michigan, Missouri, New Jersey, New York, Ohio, Oregon, Pennsylvania, or West Virginia

Paid Family and Medical Leave Tax

If you live in any of the following states, you may need to register for a Paid Family Leave or Paid Family and Medical Leave tax account – California, Colorado, Connecticut, Massachusetts, New Jersey, New York, Oregon Rhode Island, or Washington, DC.

If you are…

A new business

Any business with employees is required by law to register for, report, and remit payroll taxes to avoid costly audits, penalties, and fines.

Expanding your business or opening a new office

Each state (and in some cases, cities and municipalities) can have its own unique requirements and
regulations for taxation and payroll reporting. 

Hiring remote employees in a different state

In most cases, payroll taxes are dependent on where the work is physically being performed, regardless
of where the business is headquartered.

What our clients have to say!

Valor Payroll Solutions has, quite literally, changed my life. I’m the CEO of a small, but fast growing, company, and I had previously been taking care of our multi-state payroll myself. It was overwhelming and I did not have the necessary expertise. Christina from Valor stepped in and took our payroll over completely, including all of the multi-state tax filings and other reporting. She also fixed all of the mistakes I didn’t even know I had made. She is kind, gracious, knowledgeable, attentive, and communicative. She has improved my company and has allowed us to continue growing. I would recommend Valor to any company with payroll needs. You will kick yourself for not doing it sooner.

Tamara DeHay - Clover Educational Consulting Group

Christina with Valor Payroll Solutions has been nothing short of amazing for our small business. She is kind, she is patient, she is prompt, and she has helped us learn so much that our previous payroll company was letting slide through the cracks. We are so grateful to have found her.

Kay Shaw - Anti-bully Crusaders

If I could give a 10 star I WOULD!! Usually I don’t take time to actually write reviews unless the experience was top notch. Christina is by far the MOST patience and professional individual, I’ve had the pleasure of working with. She answered all of my seriously silly questions without belittling me. She responds very fast, with great detail and clarity. I’ll def be using her again. Thank me later!

Brittney Michelle - The Amazing Paint Party

Christina was very knowledgeable in all the HR and hiring rules. She really helped me set up the hiring system for my startup. She called CA FTB to confirm the details and went over and above to do her job perfectly. It was awesome working with her and I am glad I hired her.

Mike Felitto - Everclean Building Services, LLC

Christina Hageny did some early work for our company and we were so impressed with her level of knowledge, expertise and commitment to the project that we signed her on to manage our company’s payroll full time. We deal in all 50 states and have employees spread out all over the country. As you can imagine, we brought a pretty complex set-up to the relationship, but Christina tackled it without any issue and got us back into compliance while ensuring that our team got compensated correctly and on time along the way. We do and will continue to recommend Christina Hageny and Valor Payroll Solutions to our friends and colleagues. Capable, trustworthy and unparalleled customer service!
