California Change to Quarterly Reporting
The following information is being distributed to TALX clients in CA.
Starting with the first quarter of 2011, employers will be required to begin filing
a new Quarterly Contribution Return and Report of Wages (DE 9) and Quarterly Contribution
Return and Report of Wages (Continuation) (DE 9C).
What Employers Need to Know
Employers will report their Unemployment Insurance, Employment Training Tax, and State
Disability Insurance contributions, along with Personal Income Tax withholdings, quarterly
on the DE 9 instead of annually on the Annual Reconciliation Statement (DE 7). Detailed
wage items for each worker will be reported on the DE 9C instead of the Quarterly
Wage and Withholding Report (DE 6). The DE 6 and DE 7 should still be used for years
prior to 2011.
The Employment Development Department (EDD) expects this change to quarterly reporting
to allow them to identify overpayments more quickly, which will result in faster refunds.
In addition, EDD will be able to promptly notify employers of any amounts due.
What You Can Expect
Registered employers will receive the new forms by mail starting in 2011. The new
forms will also be available online and at local EDD offices in December 2010.
Employers should continue to make deposits using the Payroll Tax Deposit (DE 88) form.
The quarterly reporting change will not affect deposit and return due dates.
If you have questions, please contact the EDD Taxpayer Assistance Center at 888-745-3886.
