PayState Update Highlights State and Local Payroll Compliance
2023 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.
Subscribers have been learning about the continued impact of COVID-19 on state and local paid leave laws, withholding and nexus issues for employers with remote workers, developments with earned wage access, and the potential of payment of wages via cryptocurrency.
The first issue of PayState Update (Issue 1, Vol. 25) featured helpful charts detailing state annual reconciliation return deadlines and state disability and paid family leave rates for 2023. The issue also covered information on IRS Form 940, which reflects state FUTA credit reductions, additional requirements in California for employers regarding privacy, and New York's requirement for independent contractor new hire reporting.
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.
Lia Coniglio, Esq., is Managing Editor of PayState Update and Senior Manager of State Payroll Information Resources for the APA.
