Reminder: Aug. 15 BWC Payroll True-Up Deadline

At the end of each policy year, the Ohio Bureau of Workers’ Compensation (BWC) ensures the estimated premium it set for you was correct. To do this, employers must file a true-up report that reflects the actual payroll for that policy year. For private employers, this report must be completed online no later than Aug. 15. (BWC requires 2-3 business days to post your true-up to your policy account.)

If your true-up payroll exceeds the estimated payroll, you’ll owe additional premium. If your true-up payroll is less than your estimated payroll, you’ll receive a premium credit. Here are helpful resources, as well as information regarding what payroll is reportable. 8/3/2021
