Under recently enacted Illinois Public Act 097-0689, the Save Medicaid Access and Resources Together (SMART) Act, certain Illinois employers will be required to file wage reports on a monthly basis starting in 2013.
SMART Act Mandates Monthly Filing for Employers Required to File Electronically
The law states that:
For any month which begins on or after January 1, 2013, a report of the wages paid to each of an employer’s workers shall be due on or before the last day of the month next following the calendar month in which the wages were paid if the employer is required to report such wages electronically pursuant to the regulations of the Director; otherwise a report of the wages paid to each of the employer’s workers shall be due on or before the last day of the month next following the calendar quarter in which the wages were paid.
Vision Payroll Will File Monthly for Affected Illinois Clients
Vision Payroll has already made system adjustments to implement monthly filing for all impacted Illinois clients.
