Multi-State Payroll Taxation in 2022: Income Tax Withholding and Wage & Hour Issues

If your business is expanded to more than one State, understanding how to determine which State you must pay taxes to could be overwhelming. It is often difficult to understand and differentiate that each State has different laws regarding residents and non-residents. No employer wants to face huge fines and penalties for failing to be in compliance with State laws and regulations.

When your employees work in more than one State, you may be unsure which State to pay Unemployment to. The rules to determine this can be confusing and you may not be aware of how to even make this determination.
