Wilkins Miller home page

"Wilkins Miller has been our accounting firm since the formation of Project Design Group, Inc. (PDG) in 2003. Wilkins Miller was recommended to us by another company. We were told that they were easy to work with and would provide the accounting advice that we would need as a start-up company. I can say without a doubt that we have not been disappointed. We not only use them for PDG's tax preparations, but we consult with them throughout the year for tax planning, business advice, payroll questions, and many other accounting related issues. If we have a question or need, someone is always available for us, and we are always provided with good, solid professional advice. Page Stalcup has even returned my phone call while on vacation which speaks volumes for Wilkins Miller's commitment to their customers. Part of the success of PDG is directly attributable to the relationship and advice received from Page Stalcup and Wilkins Miller over the past nine years. PDG doesn't consider Wilkins Miller the typical client/customer type relationship. We think of Wilkins Miller as a partner especially in the case of Page Stalcup, a friend."

Alabama E-Verify Requirement

We want to make you aware of an April 1st deadline that will affect all Alabama employers. You may already know that Alabama's new immigration law was passed in 2011. Effective April 1, 2012, every business entity or employer must be enrolled in E-Verify to verify the employment eligibility of every new hire in the State of Alabama. For Alabama employers who contract with any governmental entity in the State of Alabama, the E-Verify requirement became effective on January 1, 2012. The Act does exempt "casual domestic labor performed in the household” from the E-Verify provisions.

E-Verify is a free on-line service provided by the Federal government.  E-Verify is the only "safe-harbor" for compliance with the law with regards to new hires, but the I-9 process is still required for current and past hires. You may access the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services website (www.uscis.gov/everify) to enroll in E-Verify. There is a video on how to enroll as well as other useful information. 

 The penalties for noncompliance are severe and can include revocation of all licenses and permits to do business throughout the State of Alabama. 

Small employers (25 or fewer employees) may elect to use the Alabama Department of Homeland Security’s service. Employers who want to utilize this service for E-verify should go to www.dhs.alabama.gov and click on the link for more information on Immigration, and then click on the "Alabama E-Verify Employer Agent Office” link. 

 Please contact us if you would like us to assist you in complying with these requirements.
