How many days do I have to submit the employee portion after each payroll?

How many days do I have to submit the employee portion after each payroll? I want to be sure that I am timely with the payments my employees are having withheld from their check each pay period.

If you're in the U.S., which I don't know from your entry, you have about 3 days from the date of your paydate to deposit your Social Security and Federal Withholding taxes. It depends on the day of the week you pay your payroll. Go the the IRS website (www.irs.gov) and search for 941 tax instructions. Look for 'when to pay taxes' for the exact details. Usually you pay their state and local withholding taxes monthly or quarterly.

Hope that helps!
