More info

File upload

Files with 300 records or more are typically processed overnight during off-peak hours. You will receive a message to check back the following day in “view submission history” for results.

No employment/wage submission

This option can be used if you have no employees and no wages to report for a quarter. This method should not be used if you had employees who did not earn any wages during the quarter.

TPA reporting wages

For instructions on how to report wages as a TPA, please refer to the TPA user guide for employment wage detail reporting.

Late filing penalties and interest charges

We encourage you to file the employment and wage detail report and pay contributions in full by the quarter due dates below to avoid interest and penalties. Late filings may incur a penalty and/or interest charges, as detailed in MGL 151A, Section 14P.
