A Word from Our CEO                                                                             

March 2015

Thanks to all of you, our valued customers, CheckMark is now in its 31st year in business.  In the computer software industry, this is a very long time and a lot has changed since our humble inception in 1984. We have certainly grown in size and gained a lot of experience; however, our values have remained the same.  Working with our many small and medium size business customers to ensure that we provide high quality and efficient software products & services is still and will remain our primary focus.

As we grow, we are hiring new staff members to join our talented team, which will allow us to offer more and state-of-the-art products and services to our current and prospective clients. We are increasing our social media presence to establish a better relationship with our clients and community, as well as to network and develop key relationships with IT professionals around the globe. We are broadening our recruitment methods to reach a larger audience of prospective employees with all types of educational and technical backgrounds.

We hope that our hard work pays off and we develop and maintain a positive reputation in the business and software products world. We will continue to provide products and services that help and provide value to small & midsize business. We will live up to our high company standards and with your support have another prosperous and positive year.

Your feedback and input is essential to us – we want to keep building products and services that meet your expectations and needs.
Thank you.

Tips from the Support Department

If you’re having problems printing your 1st Quarter 941, please see the tips below:
Make sure you have downloaded and installed the latest 15.0.7 patch of Payroll from our website http://www.checkmark.com/downloads.php#payroll.
  • Make sure you have downloaded and installed the latest version of Adobe Reader from Adobe’s website and have it set as the default reader (this is a free download) https://get.adobe.com/reader/.
  • If you’re on windows, in a network environment and are using Adobe Reader 11, you need to check your Preferences in Adobe Reader. Choose Edit/Preferences and select “Security (Enhanced)”, then UNCHECK the “Enable Protected Mode at Start up.” You may need to quit out of Adobe and Payroll and reopen them to have the change take effect.
  • If you’re on Mac and are getting a page of text instead of the form, it means you don’t have Adobe Reader set as the default and it’s coming up in Preview. You need to make sure you install the most recent version of Adobe Reader and set it as the default reader.
  • If you need to print Schedule B of your 941 form & it’s not coming up, make sure you have selected Box 16 on the pop-up window to indicate you are a Semi-weekly depositor and need to print Schedule B.
