Payroll FAQ

  • Do you handle Garnishments?
    • Yes, Garnishments are listed on the Ancillary Fee Report and can be found in the price quote. Garnishments are a per payroll cost if you want TRAXPayroll to collect and remit the funds. Some clients will set up a garnishment processing fee deduction to pass the cost back to the employee.

  • Do you Print Checks?
    • No, We are a green company and do not print any checks. We do work with a company that can do the printing of their checks but there is an added cost to this. In today's world, everything is paperless and we want to remain as Green as possible and not take on the liability of having your check stock in our offices. So we offer the client the ability to print checks on site directly from the system. It's simple and it is instant. They don't have to wait for a packet to arrive and they don't have to pay for shipping and postage.
