Tax exemptions

Being tax-exempt means that an employer or employee is not required by law to contribute to a specific tax. When you add a tax exemption in Gusto, we will not debit for that tax or report it on your filings. We highly recommend that you consult with a CPA or other tax professional to confirm if you or your employee is tax-exempt before making any changes to your Gusto account.

If your accountant is added in Gusto, we encourage you to have a discussion with them, and they can set this up. If you do not have your accountant added in Gusto, we recommend you add them, or use our Partner Directory to find one that best suits your needs.   

Some tax exemptions, like income tax exemptions, need our assistance—contact us from the Support section of your account to set these up.
