Rhode Island announces withholding tax changes for 2020


By Payroll and Entitlements Editorial Staff

Effective January 1, 2020, Rhode Island will reduce certain employer withholding tax filing frequencies, in addition to mandating electronic filings and payments for certain taxpayers. Additionally, the state will be separating an employer’s payment frequency from its filing frequency to more closely align with the IRS and other states’ schedules. Employers that will be required to file and pay electronically will receive a notice from the Division of Taxation in November 2019 providing additional details and requirements. All employers will receive a "Withholding Account Summary" notice in December that will provide required due dates for payment of their taxes withheld and their return filings for the 2020 calendar year.
