If you need to pay more employees in a particular month than is allowed by your current level
of service, you may be able to pay a flat over-limit fee (plus any sales tax applicable in your state).
To do this task
In the Employee Limit Reached window, click Pay the Fee.
Follow the instructions to continue paying your employees.
(If you have more than one company, the employee limits apply to each company separately.)
