QuickFile is a wage reporting program that can be downloaded for free. It can be used by employers with any number of employees, as well as agents and payroll providers representing multiple clients who have registered with the Texas Workforce Commission’s (TWC) Unemployment Tax Services.
QuickFile transfers wage data in the Interstate Conference of Employment Security Agencies (ICESA), MMREF-1, comma-delimited or fixed-length formats.
QuickFile can be downloaded directly to your computer. See End User License Agreement for QuickFile. If you are unable to download QuickFile, email firstname.lastname@example.org to order QuickFile on CD. Requests will be fulfilled within 1-2 business days of receipt.
Once installed on the user's computer, QuickFile analyzes a file created by the user's payroll program. It validates the format, identifies potential problems and allows the user to make corrections before transmission. After the payroll file is validated, the user transmits the report to TWC online.
QuickFile does not calculate taxable wages. The user's payroll program must do the calculation.
Current quarter reports can be submitted and processed 24 hours a day, after the quarter has ended.
