Retain Multi-state Plus service

  • You are no longer going to have any active work locations in that state.
  • None of your active employees are residing in that state. Unless they’re commuter employees who won’t be liable for income taxes in their resident state.
  • You’ve completed all required tax payments and form filings to that state.
