New CA Law Requires Employers to File
Beginning January 1, 2017, California state law, Assembly Bill 1245, requires employers with 10+ employees to submit electronically all employment tax returns, wage reports, and payroll tax deposits to the Employment Development Department (EDD). All remaining employers will be subject to this requirement beginning January 1, 2018.
To benefit employers, this law will:
- Increase data accuracy
- Increase data security
- Reduce overhead costs
- Facilitate faster processing of returns and payments
