ABBREVIATED ICESA FORMAT FOR WAGE REPORTING

Please note: Tennessee does not accept multiple volume reporting. All data must be submitted using one media source, i.e., diskette or CD. This applies to all employers, payroll tax services, accounting and bookkeeping firms, and staff leasing companies.

All wage data must be submitted using a single file saved on your media source.

Multiple employers can be submitted on a file, as long as all are being reported for the same quarter. When filing wage information for separate quarters, please submit a separate media source for each quarter.

No zero or negative wages are permitted. Any adjustments to prior quarters' wages must be made by using Form LB-0459 Claim for Adjustment or Refund.
