Since 1992, TruPayroll’s founder has been in the accounting world. Having spent time in public accounting, corporate accounting and his own firm since 1999, Al Wagner, TruPayroll’s founder, generally recommended to clients that they use an outside payroll services for over a decade.
Re-locating in Marco Island, Florida, in 2004, Al continued his work as an accountant. By 2007, Al had been approached a number of times with requests to provide payroll services to clients.
Then in 2007, a local restaurant, Hoot’s, sold to a new owner. The restaurant was located right below the accounting firm’s office in the same shopping plaza. Before closing on the sale, the soon to be former owners introduced the about to be owner, Bruce, to Al for accounting and tax services. Bruce became persistent that Al provide payroll services, too. Bruce’s experience with ADP and Paychex left him wanting a totally difference answer. After much deliberation, Al agreed and a new division of the accounting firm was launched, IAOPayroll.
Within five years, IAOPayroll developed a sizable base of customers to branch out on its own. So, in 2012, TruPayroll was launched as an independent business and a highly competitive payroll provider.
Today, TruPayroll.com operates with its customers in mind. Al maintains a very active role in the daily operations helping process customer payrolls, fielding phone calls, reaching out to new clients, offering speaking engagements, and maintaining a social media presence. All TruPayroll staff are trained in payroll and payroll related issued from worker’s compensation insurance, time clock systems, data entry, export troubleshooting, and employee specific issues to name a few. TruPayroll is here for its customers now and into the future.
