SBDC Partners with EDD

Sierra Small Business Development Center is here to help employers learn more about EDD’S Quick E-File & E-Pay for Employers and the New CA Law for Employers. 

Beginning January 1, 2017, employers with 10 or more employees will be required to electronically submit 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. Any employer required under existing law to electronically submit wage reports and/or electronic funds transfer to the EDD will remain subject to those requirements.  For more information, visit FAQs – E-file and E-pay Mandate for Employers.
