California Payroll Form Changes for 2011- Form DE 9 and DE 9C Software


Effective January 1, 2011, California employers will report total subject wages, Unemployment Insurance (UI) and Disability Insurance (DI) taxable wages and contributions, by filing a New Quarterly Contribution Return and Report of Wages (DE 9) quarterly instead of annually. Payroll Mate helps California employers comply with The CA Employment Development Department regulations and rules.

Employers will continue to report employee wages and personal income tax withheld quarterly on the New Quarterly Contribution Return and Report of Wages (Continuation) (DE 9C).

Payroll Mate generates and prints both forms: CA DE9 and CA DE 9C.

The new forms will replace the Annual Reconciliation Statement (DE 7) and the Quarterly Wage and Withholding Report (DE 6).

California employers are still required to pay their contributions with the DE 88. Deposit due dates will not be affected by this change. In spring 2011, employers will have more options available to electronically file returns, and make deposits and payments on outstanding liabilities.

For 2010, employers can use Payroll Mate 2010 to file California DE 7 and DE 6.

Payroll Mate worked directly with the EDD to update the payroll software to comply with new California regulations.
