Though I live in a state where I am not required to give a paper pay stub, I still choose to do that for a couple of different reasons. The first is because I am old school, and the contractors and subcontractors I hire are usually the same way. We grew up getting pay stubs with our checks, and that is how most of us want to continue to have this handled. It is easy for me because of the paystub generator that I found online. I already knew the rules for what needs to be on one, because I have been getting pay stubs for the better part of 30 years now.
I am not the type to just get a pay stub and throw it in a filing cabinet either. I have studied every single pay stub i have ever received to make sure all of the information on it is accurate. I know what taxes need to be paid, how to handle sick days or vacation time, and even deductions for things like pay advances. Just because I know what to look for on one does not mean I like to go through the hassle of creating them myself.
That is why I use an online generator. I know that all of the information I put in it is stored securely, so there is no danger of it being compromised. It is not like I am a major company either. I may only print three or four pay stubs a month on average, so it is just mainly a matter of convenience for me. I chose the site that I use because it is easy and cheap, two things that I really like when it comes to business matters. None of the guys who do work for me have a problem with it either!
