Here is a roundup of recently covered payroll issues:
Bloomberg Tax writers and editors reported on a variety of topics at the American Payroll Association’s annual Capital Summit, which was held March 12 and 13 in Washington:
New York released its 2018 unemployment tax rates. The taxable wage base is $11,100. New York also said it was extending to March 20 deadlines for filing and payment of most state taxes that fell between March 15 and 19. The extension applies to Dutchess, Putnam, Rockland, Sullivan, and Westchester counties, which were affected by recent snowstorms. Some exceptions were made, including for remittance of withheld income tax.
South Carolina said employers are to use a new portal for unemployment taxes starting March 26. The new portal, State Unemployment Insurance Tax System (SUITS), would replace the South Carolina Automated Tax System, which is to no longer be available for unemployment tax and wage report filing starting March 18.
Oregon released the forms for its new transit payroll tax, to be effective July 1.
