Everyone in IRIS will get help from a fiscal employer agent. After you enroll, your IRIS consultant agency will offer you options and you will choose which fiscal employer agent you want to work with. The fiscal employer agent does background checks on workers you hire, processes payroll, manages the amount of federal and state taxes to take out of your workers’ checks, and helps with other employer tasks. The fiscal employer agent also processes any cost share you may owe and pays vendors for services.
To learn more about IRIS and fiscal employer agents, refer to the IRIS Participant Handbook, P-01008.
