With the 2015 tax season upon us, Paychex, Inc., a leading provider of payroll, human resource, insurance, and benefits outsourcing solutions for small-to medium-sized businesses, is calling attention to a variety of resources available to accounting professionals to help them stay on top of critical payroll, tax, and HR issues that could impact their small business clients.

“With each new tax season comes a new set of issues and challenges that accountants need to manage for their clients,” said Andrew Childs, vice president of marketing at Paychex. “The tools and resources we provide offer the most current information available and the ability to access them anywhere and anytime to help accountants provide the best client service possible.”

Paychex’s accountant resources include:
