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 email@example.com to order QuickFile on CD. Allow 5-7 business days for 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.
For more detailed information on how to file using the QuickFile program, see the QuickFile User’s Guide.
QuickFile provides a remittance page which can be printed out and mailed with the payment. Bookkeepers, accountants and service agents can provide this to their clients after filing the quarterly wage reports. The employer may elect to use the payment option that best suits their business needs.
Questions regarding your payroll program should be directed to your software provider.
