Yes. As long as you are still in business you must file a Contribution and Wage Report when it is due. If no wages are paid during a quarter, you must file a timely report indicating no remuneration was paid during the quarter. This is known as a zero wage ($0) report. If you are going out of business you should advise DOES of that change on the last Contribution and Wage Report that you submit. If we do not know that you have gone out of business or do not receive a "zero wage" report for quarters when you do not have employees, our automated system will assume that the expected report is missing and will initiate collection action.
