Annual Refiling Survey (ARS) Web Reporting Instructions
By verifying industry and worksite information through the secure website, respondents save taxpayer money on paper, postage, and their associated costs and burden. Respondents are asked to verify or correct the same information online as has been requested previously on paper. Emphasizing more cost-effective response options helps maintain the data quality for users of Quarterly Census of Employment and Wages (QCEW) data.
