You might need to pay a bonus outside of your regular pay schedule for a variety of reasons, and to do that you can run a bonus payroll. Bonus payrolls default to the supplemental 22% withholding rate per the IRS, but this can be changed. There is no extra fee to run a bonus payroll.
If you have more than one employee, you can use our search, sort, filter, and bulk edit tools to make administrating payroll(s) easier.
Follow the steps below to run a bonus payroll. If at any point you need to exit to payroll flow, click Save changes for later at the bottom of the page to save this payroll as a draft. The steps to access this draft are the same below.
Note: If your employee has an active garnishment, you may need to check with the garnishment authority to see if there are specific requirements for garnishing the bonus payment.
