Employee state tax
I am calculating payroll taxes for a business, and was wondering besides the usual suspects (e.g. FICA, Medicare, Unemployment), do I have to accrue for STATE OF CT taxes for each employee? Or is the only tax that’s state related the income tax that is deducted from each employee’s paycheck (no real cost to the business).
Yes, you do have to calculate, withhold and pay employee state taxes in Connecticut. To know what to deduct, you’ll need each employee to fill out at CT-W4 (which is the state’s version of the tax withholding form). However, you are correct, this amount is withheld from the employee’s paycheck and doesn’t cost your business extra.
