FRESNO, CALIFORNIA – Most employers in California are already e-filing their DE-9 and DE-9C with the Employment Development Department electronically. But Datatech wants to remind you that as of January 1, all employers with 9 employees or below will be included in the e-file mandate.
Assembly Bill 1245 became law in 2015, requiring electronic filing for unemployment insurance reports submitted to the EDD. The law also requires employers to send contributions for unemployment insurance taxes by electronic funds transfer.
Employers can use e-Services for Business to comply with the e-file and e-pay mandate. e-Services for Business is a secure way to manage employer payroll tax accounts online. With e-Services for Business, employers can:
- Register for an employer payroll tax account number.
- File employment tax returns and wage reports.
- Make payroll tax deposits and pay other liabilities.
- View and update account information.
- And more
Datatech provides a training video, found here in our Support page under quarterly training, for you to easily learn where and how e-file with the EDD. We encourage you to watch the short video.
There are penalties for not complying with this mandate, so if you haven’t already, enroll in e-Services for Business.
