This is a practice quiz to help you prepare for the Certified Payroll Professional certification.  The quiz is based on a bank of 25 multiple choice questions that reveal the correct answer before you move on to the next question.  The questions and their associated answers are randomized every time you take the quiz to avoid pattern development.  Questions requiring calculations that change from year to year have been omitted. Good luck as you pursue this goal.  I hope this helps you prepare. Inspired by my lovely wife as she pursued this goal as well.
