New Maryland NAICS Codes

The state of Maryland now requires every company to provide a North American Industry Classification System (NAICS) code on the state’s annual reconciliation statement. As such, when onboarding new employers in Maryland going forward, Check will prompt each employer to provide an appropriate NAICS code. There is no integration work required on your end. 

If the employer does not provide a NAICS code, their Onboard Status will remain in ‘needs_attention’ state. While the ‘needs_attention’ state does not interfere with running payroll, Check will need this information by the year-end in order to successfully file taxes. 

Check will provide separate guidance by November 1 on how to backfill this information for existing employers in Maryland.
