I cannot register to obtain a MO Employer Account Number until I have paid at least $1,500 out in wages for MO??? How do I pay wages if I cannot set up payroll??


Hi clean4less1,

You need to register successfully so you'll be able to secure your Employer Account number and pay wages to your employees. I'm here to share with you some insights about the registration. 

To register for Missouri Employer Account number, you can go to this link: https://dor.mo.gov/registerbusiness/. Once your registration is successful, you'll receive a confirmation number at the end of the process. 

Otherwise, you can call your state to check with them why your application was not successful.

I have this article about setting up payroll for future reference: Getting Started With Payroll.

Reach out to us if you have any other concerns. I'd be happy to help you.

People come to QuickBooks Learn & Support for help and answers—we want to let them know that we're here to listen and share our knowledge. We do that with the style and format of our responses. Here are five guidelines:

  1. Keep it conversational. When answering questions, write like you speak. Imagine you're explaining something to a trusted friend, using simple, everyday language. Avoid jargon and technical terms when possible. When no other word will do, explain technical terms in plain English.
  2. Be clear and state the answer right up front. Ask yourself what specific information the person really needs and then provide it. Stick to the topic and avoid unnecessary details. Break information down into a numbered or bulleted list and highlight the most important details in bold.
  3. Be concise. Aim for no more than two short sentences in a paragraph, and try to keep paragraphs to two lines. A wall of text can look intimidating and many won't read it, so break it up. It's okay to link to other resources for more details, but avoid giving answers that contain little more than a link.
  4. Be a good listener. When people post very general questions, take a second to try to understand what they're really looking for. Then, provide a response that guides them to the best possible outcome.
  5. Be encouraging and positive. Look for ways to eliminate uncertainty by anticipating people's concerns. Make it apparent that we really like helping them achieve positive outcomes.
