Licensing requirements for Washington employers.
Harbor Compliance provides payroll tax registration services in every state to help your company hire employees and process payroll on time.
In most states, the two payroll taxes are withholding and unemployment insurance (aka unemployment tax and unemployment compensation). Employers must register for the appropriate accounts in order to hire employees, to process payroll, and to file tax returns. Given the virtual, home-based, and temporary nature of employees, registrations often take place on short notice and in multiple states. Foreign qualification and registered agent are prerequisites in most states.
