How do I manage my US employees’ taxes?
International businesses that hire US workers must make federal, state and local payroll tax payments to the government. You will also need to file reports and informational returns. There may also be state requirements as well, which will vary depending on the location of your business.
If you’re an international business operating in the USA, you’ll be responsible for paying federal payroll tax to the government:
- you’ll most likely file tax returns on a quarterly or annual basis
- deposits will be made on a periodic basis
In order to do this, you’ll need to obtain a Federal Employer ID number from the Internal Revenue Service. Tax agencies will generally inform you with what you need to do next, supplying you with information and instructions about your obligations regarding taxes and returns.
