2021 launches a new year of PayState Update, the only biweekly eNewsletter in the industry dedicated exclusively to state and local payroll compliance news and issues. This five-page newsletter is a subscription publication accessed through the APA Bookshelf. It can be purchased as a standalone product, or as part of Payroll Source Plus or the Federal and State Payroll Compliance Resource.

Recent Topics

Subscribers have been learning about the impact of COVID-19 on state and local paid leave laws, withholding and nexus issues for employers with remote workers, state treatment of filing new Forms 1099-NEC, Nonemployee Compensation, and much more.

The first issue of PayState Update (Issue 1, Vol. 23) featured helpful charts detailing state annual reconciliation return deadlines and state disability and paid family leave rates for 2021. The issue also covered state white collar exemption salary threshold increases that took effect on January 1, along with information on updated state withholding tables.


PayState Update contains in-depth articles and analyses, comparative charts, state-by-state information, a Q&A feature, and a Coming Soon feature on pending legislation. An Index, covering all topics covered for the year, is available, along with an archive for the previous year’s newsletters.
