How do I get started?
RoamHR can act as a calculator and project your income based on the amount you’ve earned to date, figure out your taxes and make an assessment of how you’re saving. With simple rules, it will automatically take taxes out of your incoming payments and move those into your secure tax savings account. You can also enable Roam to make automatic quarterly payments to the IRS on your behalf.
How does RoamHR calculate taxes?
Roam needs to know the amount of income you have earned to date in order to have a baseline to start. Once it has a baseline, we add new income processed and create a projection for the end of the year. We create a projection every time you interact with the software, so if you haven’t earned income recently, we account for that, as well. We pull your projected taxes from US tax tables and make recommendations based on where you are today. This way we can handle huge fluctuations to your income.
How do IRS payments work?
Payments are an optional service within RoamHR. You can sign up for the service under the application settings/Payments. You will just need to provide some additional information in order for us to process your registration, including your last year’s tax filing data. Once you sign up and activate payments, we can pull funds from your Tax Savings account for the IRS. We pull as close to the amount you owe as your balance will allow. Activation needs to occur 7 days prior to the published IRS quarterly due date.
What happens with my data?
Is RoamHR secure?
Security is our number one priority, and we take it very seriously. Our first course of action is to store the least amount of data that we can to provide the service. We rely on secure service providers to store bank account information, and use tokenized access to it so that it doesn’t reside in our data center. When we have to store the data, we store it in secure facilities protected by strict identity and access protocols.
