Today’s post is by Lisa Gordon, our Senior Technical Support Manager.
The completion of the 1st quarter of 2013 is approaching, and we’re preparing for it right now:
- Two states will have modifications to their quarterly mag media specifications: California and Illinois. You can also expect an update of COATSsql that includes the new 941 form. These updates will be available in version updates by the end of March.
- COATS customers receive email notifications related to their state’s changes to withholdings, quarterly and year-end file formats. However, we use Constant Contact for these emails, and sometimes people opt out of all emails from Constant Contact, which could mean you’re not getting the updates you need. If you want to make sure you receive these notifications, be sure to sign up for our email list on our Customers Only page.
- You also may want to follow us on Facebook as we post these notifications there as well: http://www.facebook.com/pages/COATSsql/134696569895388
- We also welcome information from you regarding any changes your state has notified you about. Please feel free to pass along these notifications to us. That ensures two things: that COATS knows and that you know we know.
We are always here for you, our customer, no matter what year or quarter. :-).
