New EDD Services for California Employers
California's Employment Development Department (EDD) introduced expanded e-Services for Business on March 1. Employers will be able to conduct more transactions with the EDD online, including:
- Viewing account information
- Filing reports
- Paying tax deposits and liabilities
Also, the new Quarterly Contribution Return and Report of Wages (DE 9) and the Quarterly Contribution Return and Report of Wages (Continuation) (DE 9C), the DE 34 and the DE 542 will be filed online through this new service, according to the EDD.
All current users of EDD's e-Services will need to re-enroll to receive a username and password for the expanded services. Employers can check out e-Services for Business to learn about the new services and get details on enrolling.
Employers will still use the DE 6, DE 7 and DE 678 for years prior to 2011.
Starting with the first quarter of 2011, employers will begin filing certain reports quarterly. The EDD also announced that final versions of the new quarterly reporting forms are available:
- Quarterly Contribution Return and Report of Wages (DE 9)
- Quarterly Contribution Return and Report of Wages (Continuation) (DE 9C)
The EDD's 2011 Payroll Tax Reporting Changes FAQs can help employers with more information about 2011 payroll tax changes.
