Following on from the release of Colorado and Indiana, we’re pleased to announce the availability of Xero Payroll to businesses located in Maryland and Tennessee.

Small businesses represent over 97.5 percent of all employers in Maryland and Tennessee. By bringing seamless accounting and payroll to these small businesses we’re helping tackle the complexity of payroll.

Seamless online accounting and payroll software is easy to implement and use from anywhere. Payroll information flows seamlessly to keep the books up to date, with journals created automatically.

Maryland and Tennessee Xero Payroll

If you have employees in Maryland or Tennessee you can now pay them through Xero Payroll. All the calculations are taken care of for you automatically. Pay your employees via direct deposit or with instant paychecks. And timesheets are included at no extra cost for all employees.

Detailed reports are available to help you keep track of your company’s payroll information. Employees can even enter their own timesheets, view time off and pay history via their own employee app.

Payroll Taxes and Payments

If you’re in Maryland you’ll need to manually file and pay your payroll taxes directly with the Comptroller of Maryland, Revenue Administration Division and Maryland Department of Labor, Licensing and Regulation, Division of Unemployment Insurance. We’re working on supporting electronic filing and payments for Maryland.

If you’re in Tennessee you’ll need to manually file and pay your payroll taxes directly with the Tennessee Department of Labor and Workforce Development, Employment Security Division. This will only be for a short time while we work on supporting electronic filing and payments for Tennessee.

We’ll tell you when and what you have to file and pay but you’ll need to complete this outside of Xero for now. You’ll get email reminders to ensure you don’t miss any filing deadlines.

You’ll see all upcoming payroll filing and payment obligations on the Payroll Overview. You can find detailed information available under Taxes & Filings. Xero Payroll calculates relevant business days and displays both the File By and Due By dates to keep you informed of key dates.

More states coming soon

With the release of Maryland and Tennessee, we now support eleven states. These eleven states account for approximately 50 percent of the population of the US.

We’re working hard to bring Xero Payroll to more states. The next states to be released include New Hampshire, Washington, Wyoming, South Dakota, Alaska, Hawaii, Nevada and Illinois.

To get started using payroll, simply click on the payroll tab within your account. For more details  on the release, please see the release notes.
