Prepping for Year End

Wednesday, November 30th, 2011

PCS Year End ProcessIn an effort to help your 2011 year-end process run smoothly, we have prepared a number of important resources that can be accessed by clicking here.  Here you will find helpful forms, checklists and reminders to aid you in preparing for year-end.  We strongly encourage you to download and use these resources to help you manage your year-end payroll process.  Important resources available on the site include:

  • Year-End “To Do” Checklist (important steps to take to ensure an error free year-end)
  • Exception Payroll Request Form
  • Bonus/Unscheduled Payroll Request Form
  • Complete List of 2012 Federal Reserve Holidays
  • 2012 PCS Holiday Schedule and Processing Guidelines
  • Fringe Benefit & Third Party Sick Pay Reporting Guidelines
  • Millennium Software Tax Update Information

PCS will begin processing all quarter-end and annual returns on the first of January and expects to have all packages completed and delivered by January 25, 2012.  This is a very busy time of year for all of us, and extra phone calls will only slow us down.  If you don’t receive your package by January 25, please call then to let us know.  Thank you in advance for your patience.

Any requested changes or corrections made after December 30, 2011 will require the re-processing of your year-end returns and W2 information. This cost will be the same as your original billing, plus the cost of an additional payroll run. This may also result in you receiving your final year-end information later than expected. Any changes made after January 31st will require amended forms to be produced. These amended forms will not be completed until after the month of February at a cost of $50 per form.


Thank you for helping to make this year-end process run smoothly!
