 Kind of Employer Prints on Form W-3

When printing Form W-3, you can now select the Kind of Employer. Since most ACS Payroll clients are private, non-government employers, the default option, 501c non-govt., is selected. The updated form complies with the IRS 2011 W-3 Transmittal, and the new section displays on the 2011 Form W-3.

 Displaying Overspending as Positive
