Employers and Third Party Agents
Testing has begun for Wage File Submission

Testing prior to system implementation is recommended but not required.

If you currently file your wage reports by entering employee and wage information directly into the current system, you will continue to be able to do so in the new system. You do not need to use one of the four new file formats.
