ADP Raises the Bar With Fully Automated Sales Tax Solution

Industry's First End-to-End Solution Manages Calculation, Return Filing, and Remittance to State and Local Governments

ROSELAND, NJ--(Marketwire - January 14, 2008) - ADP ® Employer Services (NYSE: ADP), a leading provider of human resources, payroll, benefits administration and tax services, today announced the release of the ADP Outsourced Sales Tax Service, an industry first service that automates the entire sales tax function, from calculation of sales and use taxes and completion of forms to the transfer of funds to state and local governments.

"Today we are redefining what a tax solution should be," said David Forbes, General Manager, ADP Taxware. "Up to now, the debate has been focused on the quality of a vendor's tax research or the technical merits of a vendor's tax engine. The reality is that businesses are looking for much more than that. They are looking for an all-inclusive, end-to-end solution, and that's what we are delivering with the ADP Outsourced Sales Tax Service."

New Definition of a Tax Solution

With this new offering, ADP performs end-to-end automation of the sales tax compliance process, reducing exposure to tax liability and compliance costs. Specifically, ADP offers full automation of tax calculations, tax filings, and tax payments, and back-office services supporting the entire process. The solution operates as follows:

--  Tax calculation is done through one of ADP's widely-used and proven
    tax systems:  the Sales and Use Tax System or Taxware Enterprise
--  Data from the calculation system is automatically placed on government-
    approved tax forms
--  Custody of tax funds is transmitted to ADP for secure remittance to
    over 11,500 state and local governments nationwide
