Add an employer tax exemption

Your company may be exempt from a certain tax, and is therefore not required by law to contribute to this tax in each payroll. We highly recommend that you consult with a CPA or other tax professional to confirm that your company is tax exempt before setting this up in Gusto.

  1. Contact our Customer Care team at support@gusto.com for assistance in adding the employer tax exemption. 
  2. Make sure to let us know the following:
    • Name of the exempt tax

    • The actual effective date for the tax exemption

    • Reason for the tax exemption and supporting documentation

Once this is set up, no wages will be reported for this tax and we won't file for this tax in payroll.
