Where will I file 4th quarter reports for 2017?

All fourth quarter reports for 2017 should be filed how you normally would.

When will I start filing through the SUITS system?

We anticipate that first quarter 2018 reports will be filed in SUITS, but be assured there will be plenty of lead time for preparation as well as tutorial videos to walk you through the new system.

Will I still be able to file through SCBOS when SUITS goes live?

SCBOS will no longer accept employer files on behalf of DEW. When SUITS launches, businesses and TPAs will need to use the SUITS system to file.

How can I check to make sure that my file format is compatible with SUITS?
