New Real-Time Data Exchange Capabilities From ADP Help Make Employment Tax Compliance Faster, More Efficient

Illinois Department of Revenue Signs On to Become the First State to Take Advantage of This Service, Helping to Reduce Data Exchange Time From Weeks to Seconds

ROSELAND, NJ--(Marketwired - Jan 22, 2015) - ADP®, a leading global provider of human capital management solutions, today announced the availability of a "real-time" data exchange capability that will help significantly streamline employment tax processing as part of its ADP SmartCompliance® Employment Tax module. The Illinois Department of Revenue has already begun development, enabling ADP to communicate nearly instantly with the department. The program is available to other state agencies as well, and ADP does not charge a fee for agencies to enroll.

"What used to be up to a month of lag time for communication between the Illinois Department of Revenue and employers in the state now takes seconds," said Wendy Seyfert, vice president of agency relations at ADP. "We applaud the Illinois Department of Revenue for its willingness to embrace new technologies and capabilities to achieve greater efficiency, and we look forward to bringing additional states on board so more employers can realize the benefits of the program."

"As a state agency, every dollar counts, so we need to maximize our efficiency at every step of the process," said O. Wayne Richie, accounts processing manager at the Illinois Department of Revenue. "We also want to make it as easy as possible for Illinois businesses to manage their tax compliance, and the real-time data exchange capability streamlines the process for all parties involved, in a secure method that helps to protect confidentiality. We look forward to working with ADP on future initiatives."

The ADP SmartCompliance Employment Tax module helps employers reduce the burden of employment tax processing and compliance with related regulatory changes. ADP's expertise in employment tax management helps streamline tax filing processes and reduce the risks of noncompliance, while also helping businesses achieve advantages through more strategic use of staff time. To learn more about the ADP SmartCompliance Employment Tax module, visit
