Premium Audit


New 2022 Officer Limitations

Each year the State of New Mexico revises the officer/owner payroll limitations, impacting the cost of workers’ compensation coverage for company owners and officers. For 2022, corporate officers and LLC members who elect coverage are subject to a minimum annual payroll of $950 per week and a maximum payroll of $3,800 per week. Partners and sole proprietors who elect to be covered will be included at a flat amount of $49,100 per year, or $4,092 per month.


Monthly Payroll Reporting

If you have your monthly payroll reporting done by the 15th of each month, you get an extra 2.5% discount.  Please have your reporting done by the 25th of the month to avoid late fees.

Reporting should include W2 gross wages, contract labor, and any uninsured outside labor.

Do you have a project that there are employee duties that do not appear to fit within the classifications currently on your account?  Please call us so we can discuss proper classification for the work being done.
