A Word from Our CEO

October 2011
Everyone at CheckMark is working hard to make the 2012 versions of Payroll, MultiLedger, and 1099 applications more robust, secure, scalable, and extensible. Very soon, you will be able to purchase the 2012 versions and enjoy the new features, which are detailed in the newsletter. Please check the new Operating System requirements for the new version.
I am sure you are aware that more changes in tax laws are coming. Rest assured CheckMark is carefully monitoring all state and federal payroll tax changes that could impact your withholdings and payroll tax limits. We always release new patches and updated payroll tables as soon as the changes happen and it is more important than ever to run the latest version and purchase an annual tech support plan.
In response to requests from new and existing customers alike, CheckMark opened a new division in 2011, CheckMark Payroll Services. Now employers nationwide have three CheckMark payroll service options and can take advantage of our 27 years of payroll knowledge and experience. Read the newsletter and discover how to earn CheckMark Dollars for referrals. Employers running the current version of our payroll software can switch without incurring any setup fees.
The fourth quarter is here. We are looking forward to serving you during the coming weeks, which is the busiest time of the year for most of you and for us. Thank you for being our customer and please let us know what we can do to make our products, services, and support work better for you.
Best regards.
Mohammed Ghani
President and CEO
