Hawaii Announces Changes to Payroll Tax Deposit Frequency for Many Employers

Filed under: News — Tags: , , — Vision @ 11:56 am

In Department of Taxation Announcement No. 2009-11, the State of Hawaii recently implemented changes to the deposit frequency rules for employers paying state withholding tax. For wages paid before January 1, 2010 the current rules will remain in effect. For wages paid after December 31, 2009, the new rule is that any employer required to deposit federal payroll taxes on a semi-weekly deposit schedule must also deposit Hawaii withholding taxes on the same frequency. In addition, employers who must follow the semi-weekly deposit schedule will be required to pay those taxes by electronic funds transfer. Contact Vision Payroll if you have any further questions on the changes to the Hawaii deposit frequency rules.
