Texas Third Quarter Filing Deadline Issue
The following was issued to TALX clients –
third quarter, 2010 contribution report filing deadline of October 31st falls on Sunday
this year. We have contacted the state agency to determine if that deadline will be
extended to the following business day.
Employers Need to Know
to Texas law, if the quarterly filing deadline falls on a Saturday, Sunday or a legal
holiday, it is extended to the following business day. No penalty will be assessed
as long as the report and payment are postmarked or filed electronically before midnight
CST the next business day. That date is Monday, November 1st for this quarter.
the computation date for employer’s 2011 rate calculations is September 30, 2010,
another section of the law applies. Only taxable payroll from reports filed and paid
by October 31, 2010 is included in the 2011 rate calculation. That date is NOT extended;
therefore, employers should plan on filing and making payment by October 31, 2010
to ensure proper credit in their rate calculation. Not getting credit for the third
quarter taxable payroll could have a detrimental effect on the 2011 rate assignment.
unreported wages or unpaid taxes that remain delinquent as of October 31, 2010 will
also not be included.
