Taxes and Forms

The taxes you withhold from your employees’ paychecks need to be deposited to the concerned tax authorities based on your deposit schedule.

Further, you need to file your quarterly and yearly forms. Zoho Payroll helps you keep track of all the taxes and forms in one place.

You will be notified when a tax needs to be paid and when a form needs to be filed so you stay compliant at all times.

The Taxes and Forms houses all your upcoming and completed tax payments and form filings.


You will find the tax name, deposit period, amount to be paid, and the due date for each tax, with the most urgent ones being listed at the top.

Clicking a tax will give you more details about that specific deposit.

Insight: You can also add if there was any penalty or interest that you paid, even though we sincerely believe that you won’t incur any.

Marking Forms as Filed

To mark a form as filed:
