Business owners often have great responsibilities while operating and managing a business. Before you become an employer and hire employees, you need a Federal Employer Identification Number (EIN). If you have employees, you are responsible for several federal, state, and local taxes. As an employer, you must withhold Federal Income Tax, Social Security and Medicare taxes, and Federal Unemployment Tax Act (FUTA).

As an employer, you are also responsible for timely depositing and withholding federal & state income, your matching share of social security and Medicare taxes from your employees' wages and any Federal Unemployment Tax Act (FUTA) taxes.

As a new business owner, you need to know you federal and state tax responsibilities. In addition to knowing about the federal and state taxes, you need to make some basic business decisions.
