California outlines recent changes in payroll tax reporting

The California Employment Development Department (EDD) has announced the following recent changes to personal income tax withholding and payroll tax reporting requirements:

  • Effective January 1, 2013, employers must use “business” days to measure the due date for payroll tax deposits instead of “banking days.”
  • Also effective January 1, 2013, an individual is considered a rehire if the employer/employee relationship has ended and the returning individual had been separated from that same employer for at least 60 consecutive days. The employer must report the rehire to the New Employee Registry within 20 days from the start-to-work date.
  • The annual Employer?s Guide will no longer be mailed to employers. Employers wishing to receive a paper guide must go to e-Services for Business on the EDD?s website athttp://www.edd.ca.gov/
