California EDD Changes Payroll Tax Filings

Effective April 1, 2011, and beginning with all first quarter 2011 filings, the California Employment Development Department (EDD) is modifying the existing payroll tax forms and changing the filing frequency for the Contribution Return.

In summary, the changes are:

 The DE 7, Annual Reconciliation Statement, is being replaced with the DE 9, Quarterly Contribution Return and Report of Wages. The DE 9 must now be filed on a quarterly basis.
 The DE 6, Quarterly Wage and Withholding Report, is being replaced with the DE 9C, Quarterly Contribution Return and Report of Wages (Continuation). The DE 9C filing is still required quarterly.
 There is no change to the DE 88, Payroll Tax Deposit form.
