I’m so excited! I used another software for years just to process 1 paycheck monthly submit my monthly tax deposits, 4 Quarterly 941’s & 1 annual 940 Form. They charged me $39/month (no physical check - just the bookkeeping for it, I personally transferred the money myself from business to personal checking each month). That service cost $468/year - quitting them & using TaxBandits for those 4 Quarterly & 1 Annual 940 Reports will cost me approximately $25 annually - a SAVINGS of $443.00TaxBandits for those 4 Quarterly & 1 Annual 940 Reports will cost me approximately $25 annually - a SAVINGS of $443.00!!
