A small business with 2 employees

You are a business that’s just starting payroll, and you would like MassTax to setup and run your payroll each month. You decide that you would like to pay your two new employees twice a month (semi-monthly). You decide, based on Gusto’s products that you only need Gusto’s simple plan. Your fee would be as follows:

Gusto Base Fee (per month): $40 + $6 per employee = $52

MassTax one-time setup fee: $125

MassTax monthly per pay-period fee: $150 (two pay periods per month)

Your first month invoice would be $327 (base fee, plus setup fee, plus per pay-period fee)

You would then be billed $202 per month thereafter, plus $6 per any additional employees you add in the future.

Payroll Options

Migrating to our services

You already have payroll but would like to have MassTax take over and manage your payroll. Using the same scenario from above, your fee would be the same $327 initial fee (the $125 migration fee, plus base fee, plus the per pay-period fee).
