Step 1: Select whether you would like to use the complimentary tax management service or use your own tax provider

Tip 💡: This service is included in the CareLinx fee and we strongly recommend you use it to help manage your employment tax obligations.

If you select to use your own tax management you can resume with the hiring process. If you choose to use it, continue to follow the steps below. 

Step 2: Begin to enroll for the tax assistance

Click 'CONTINUE' to begin the enrollment process

Step 3: Enter your social security number

Step 4: Enter your bank information

Type in the information of the bank account you wish to use to pay your taxes. 

Step 5: Enter the address of the employer
