Multi-State Payroll in 2024

Besides State withholding there are also local taxes in certain areas. Some States have local taxes for larger cities and other have them for every locality. You are responsible for making sure you are properly withholding for these localities and you have to know where and when to pay these taxes. You will be given helpful websites to find out detailed information on withholding for these taxes and where to pay them to.
