National Payroll Week

National Payroll Week, September 3-7, celebrates America’s employees and the payroll professionals who pay them. Together through payroll withholding, we contribute collect, report, and deposit 70%, of the U.S. Treasury’s annual revenue, about $2.4 trillion per year.

Stay up to date with National Payroll Week all year long! Use the hashtag #PayrollWeek when posting about NPW on social media and make sure to ‘like’ the official NPW Facebook page.

The American Payroll Association needs the support of businesses* across the country to recognize the important work of payroll professionals. Commit to recognizing the achievements of your payroll employees and become a NPW Supporter

*Businesses with a payroll product or service are ineligible for the NPW Supporter program.
