Payroll reporting

For policies effective on or after January 1, 2024, sole proprietors who have elected coverage must report as follows:

  • Annual reportable payroll: $67,400

If your policy period is anything other than a full calendar year in length, multiply $184.66 by the number of days in the policy period. When the sole proprietor is covered for a portion of a policy period, multiply $184.66 by the actual number of days of covered work during the policy period. Report the result for the sole proprietor's coverage during the policy period.
