Looking for inexpensive federal payroll tax electronic filing software - any suggestions?

Hello,
My clients are all individuals working a regular job, 1-person businesses with no employees or 1-person businesses that have occasionally paid independent
contractors and issued them a 1099. For the first time, I have a client that has hired a salaried employee, so state and federal payroll taxes must be withheld and paid every quarter, which he wants me to do for him. He will give me his bank information so all tax payments can be made electronically, and no money actually has to go through my hands which both he and I prefer.
Filing and paying state withholding, unemployment and disability taxes are no problem, since the state's Department of Revenue has its own online filing and payments website - no need to use 3rd party software for that. Federal payroll tax payments can be made using www.eftps.gov. But actually filing the quarterly 941 and FUTA returns appears to require the use of 3rd party software, and the only software (online or otherwise) I've found for this are companies that charge hundreds of dollars for filing regardless of the number of employees you have. Does anyone have suggestions for online payroll tax filing companies for low-volume filers (as in for one employee) where I can file both 941s and the annual W-2 statement? I'd hate to have to use paper returns for this and so would the client.

Take a look at <http://filetaxes.com/Content/Services_Pricing
I've never used them, but their prices seem reasonable. Let us know what you think.

Is 941 to be filed electronically required for small companies? I thought there was an exemption for small companies.
Don't forget the corresponding state forms.

It appears like you need 3rd part electronic filing software no matter what, but I'll look into this. Does anyone know if this is true?

Yes, thank you for the reminder, the good thing is that the state allows all payroll (taxes, unemployment insurance, etc.) to be filed electronically on their website, without paying for 3rd party software.
