SAN ANTONIO, Sept. 5, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- This September 5-9, America's workers will come together to celebrate everyone's favorite day–payday!  National Payroll Week, held annually the week of Labor Day, recognizes the contributions of America's 156 million workers and the payroll professionals who pay them accurately and on-time.

"Through the payroll withholding system, payroll professionals collect 71.9 percent of the U.S. Treasury's revenue.  That's $1.7 trillion dollars annually," said Dan Maddux, executive director of the American Payroll Association.  "These contributions are the life-blood of America, funding important programs like highways, Social Security, child support and more."

During National Payroll Week, the APA and its 22,000 members educate the public about payroll withholding and payroll-related benefits such as flexible spending accounts, retirement savings accounts, and how to properly fill out Form W-4.  

"National Payroll Week is the perfect time to review and maximize your paycheck," said Maddux.  "Free payroll-related benefits save employees up to 35 percent on everyday expenses like daycare, commuter parking and transportation, and medical expenses."

APA also conducts the popular "Getting Paid In America" online survey during National Payroll Week, which asks respondents to weigh in on topics that impact their paychecks. One grand prize winner will receive a free paycheck and trip to Las Vegas after the survey ends on Sept. 9.
