Year to Date (YTD) is crucial for understanding payroll dynamics. Employers utilize it to gauge their payroll expenditure, while employees rely on it for accurate tax reporting on their income tax return. With PayStubCreator, rest assured your YTD is calculated with precision.

I've made an error. Can I modify the paystub post-generation?

Absolutely. If alterations are needed for your paystub, connect with our Customer Service. They will help implement the changes and send over the revised stub promptly.

Are these paystubs suitable for formal uses such as loan applications?

Yes, they are. However, make sure all the data you provide is both correct and honest. It's advisable to check with the institution or agency you're submitting to for any specific criteria they may have.

How do I generate multiple stubs?

While on the salary information page, start by entering pay dates, with the most recent one first. When you choose the "Add Dates" option, our system will automatically populate earlier dates based on your specified pay cycle, moving backward in time. This tool ensures a simplified and precise process when inputting pay dates to form your stub.

Is it possible to include a direct deposit slip on my paystub?

How do I craft pay stubs for my employees using PayStubCreator?

Start by selecting "employee" as the employment status in the employee information section. Next, fill in crucial details like their salary. Our system will then handle the rest, auto-calculating all relevant state-specific deductions and contributions. This guarantees your employees receive accurate and timely pay stubs.

Are "paystub" and "paycheck" same documents?

Not quite. A paycheck refers to the physical check or direct deposit used to pay an employee. In contrast, a paystub provides a detailed record of an employee's earnings and any deductions for a specific period. While the paycheck acts as the "receipt" of payment, the paystub functions more like an "itemized invoice" of the employee's work during that time.

My YTD seems incorrect. What should I do?

Our system defaults to calculating the YTD starting from January 1st for every year. If you began your job on January 1st, 2023, then the stubs generated would be for your 15th and 16th paychecks. If your start date was different, please share either the exact hiring date or your paycheck count, and we'll adjust accordingly. If you already have the correct YTD amount, let us know, and we'll update it for you.
