Prepare for career success with first-hand experience in calculating payroll, completing payroll taxes, and preparing payroll records and reports. The 2013 edition of Bieg/Toland's market-leading text addresses all of the latest laws and up-to-the-minute updates regarding payroll. The text focuses on applications rather than theory, and includes strong end-of-chapter material that reinforces concepts and provides valuable hands-on learning experiences. Numerous new examples and real business applications enliven this edition and demonstrate the relevance of the material. An extensive payroll project within the last chapter of the book gives students the opportunity to practice all they have learned, either manually or using Payroll Accounting software included with the text. Additionally, CengageNOW software is available to help you assign and grade student work!
