Yes, you read that right. The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) posts videos to YouTube to help taxpayers, and in this specific case, employers better understand what their tax-related responsibilities are and how to fulfill them.
If you’ve hired a third-party payroll service provider to perform payroll processing and tax-related duties, including making employment tax deposits, then this video is for you: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0w2VMnNiTgg. As always, there are caveats to general statements like those included in the video – for example, if you hire a “Certified Professional Employer Organization” to handle your payroll processing and tax-related duties, most of the video doesn’t apply to you.
The IRS’s YouTube videos are a great place to get basic information, but be sure to follow the links below the videos back to the IRS’s website for more detailed information. For more IRS videos on YouTube, see: https://www.youtube.com/user/irsvideos.
