Red Wing Windows Payroll Support Ends January 31, 2021

NOTE: This notification is for the Red Wing Software legacy product, which is called Red Wing Payroll (or Red Wing Windows Payroll). This notification is NOT in reference to CenterPoint Payroll, which is the current payroll system offered by Red Wing Software.
Red Wing Software will be discontinuing support services and product upgrades for the Red Wing Payroll Software on January 31, 2021. If you are still using the Red Wing Payroll Software for your business, it is important that you work with our staff to start the transition process to our flagship payroll product, CenterPoint® Payroll. There will be no upgrades, including 2021 tax table updates, or telephone support for Red Wing Payroll once support ends.
While Red Wing Payroll has been a solid and capable product for over 20 years, the underlying technology is out-of-date, and we cannot promise it will continue to run as operating systems change. There are also some new W-4 requirements that cannot be handled by Red Wing Payroll, so it is imperative that we transition our customers to newer software. (See the following article for URGENT information about the W-4 form changes.)
A Red Wing Software consultant will help you through the transition process. Call us to get up and running on CenterPoint Payroll!
To speak with a consultant, please call 800-732-9464.
Thank you for being a long-time customer of Red Wing Software. We look forward to an ongoing partnership with you and your business!
