SUITS logo-03

In the first quarter of 2018, DEW saw a 34% increase in the number of people filing wage reports and tax payments through SUITS rather than by mail.

Find out why so many people are enjoying the benefits of SUITS. It is a quick and easy way to file your taxes by July 31.
(Payments and wage reports must be received online or postmarked by midnight on the filing deadline.)

DEW is hosting presentations for employers and TPAs to give a customized overview of the system and go through answers to frequently asked questions. There are several dates and times in Columbia to choose from or you can join us online. Please click the session you wish to attend in order to register.
