We’re on a mission to make payroll painless.
Frequently Asked Questions
You asked – we answered! Here’s everything you need to know about our all-in-one payroll platform SDP Connect.
Our entire team is happy to help as you transition to using SDP Connect. This resources page and the SDP Connect Help Center both have a wealth of material that will help you get acclimated to the system (written guides, videos, knowledge base,etc.).
Additionally, we have a recorded webinar training to walk you through the system you can view here.
We are committed to doing all that we can to ensure none of your sensitive payroll data gets into the wrong hands. We take security very seriously and want to help keep every account as safe and secure as possible.
We encrypt all reports and documents containing confidential information (including address, bank account, SSN, pay rates and wages, etc.) through our secure portal.
SDP Connect also uses two-factor authentication to ensure your data is never at risk. Finally, anyone calling in regarding your account must be an authorized contact and provide the account’s company ID and call-in passcode for an added level of security.
Southland Data Processing uses the Electronic Federal Tax Payment System (EFTPS) to pay your federal taxes. Our tax department applies for an EFTPS Inquiry Personal Identification Number (4-digit PIN) for each client, so you can verify payments made through EFTPS on your behalf.
Currently we support English.
Our in-house payroll tax processing department provides comprehensive payroll tax service that guarantees prompt, accurate payment for all states and localities within the United States.
