Withholdin/unemployment/workers comp

edited October 2010 in General Payroll Topics
We have an employer that located in OH, they just hired sales person in Texas. Can some provide some insight on how to determine taxes withholding.

should I set up a business ID, apply unemployment withholding under TX?

Does anyone have a good reference to review these rules?

Thanks

  • Generally you start with the Texas website - TX does not have a state income tax. Generally, unemployment goes to the state where the employee performs most of the services - so that sounds like TX and you would have to register. Don't know how you would handle work comp - might want to start with your current provider and see if you can add a TX employee to the existing plan.
  • Texas is the only state where the employer is not required to have worker's comp insurance. The employee(s) must be informed, however. Normally, that is via a poster. But if this guy is working from his home, you could just notify him in writing, parallelling the information on the poster.

    And you have to file a yearly form with the state that puts your intentions into writing with them. It has to be mailed certified if I remember correctly.
