2019 Safety Award Judges

Ohio BWC Payroll True-up Deadline: Aug. 15


Ohio Bureau of Workers' Compensation logoAll private employers must true-up. At the end of each policy period, employers must reconcile estimated payroll with actual payroll - this is called the true-up.

The true-up period for the 2018 policy year (July 1, 2018 to June 30, 2019) began July 1. Payroll true-up reports are due to Ohio Bureau of Workers’ Compensation (BWC) no later than Aug. 15.

According to the BWC, the true-up allows more accurate premium calculation. Even if actual payroll for the year matches the original BWC estimate, or a business had zero payroll, the true-up report must be completed. Employers must complete the payroll true-up report online. If you do not have a BWC e-account, you can create one by clicking here.

For more information, contact Cordell Walton (CareWorks Comp) at 614.764.7600.
