Square Payroll supports paying employees whose work address is within your business’s primary tax jurisdiction.
When adding an employee to Square Payroll, please ensure their work address is correct for tax purposes. An employee’s work address is often their primary work location.
If an employee’s work address is outside of your business’s primary tax jurisdiction, you will be unable to pay them using Square Payroll. If you need to pay them or have already paid them for work performed at that work address, please contact support.
If your business has multiple EINs for which all employees have a work address within that EIN’s primary tax jurisdiction, you can continue using Square Payroll after opening a new Square account for each additional EIN. If you’re interested in doing this or want to learn more, please contact support.
Please note these limitations apply only to W-2 employees, not 1099 contractors. Square Payroll supports paying contractors in all 50 states, regardless of your business’s primary tax jurisdiction.
