Employers: Do you know about Texas New Hire Reporting?

Federal and State law requires employers to report new hires within 20 days of their state date. Information received is kept in a confidential database and used by various state and federal agencies to ensure payment of child support and prevent fraud in Workers’ Compensation, unemployment claims and welfare programs. This can help reduce the costs of these programs and LOWER YOUR TAXES. To find out more about it, and file your report on-line, go to the following website:
