The following was issued to TALX clients -


The third quarter, 2010 contribution report filing deadline of October 31st falls on Sunday this year. We have contacted the state agency to determine if that deadline will be extended to the following business day.

What Employers Need to Know

According to Texas law, if the quarterly filing deadline falls on a Saturday, Sunday or a legal holiday, it is extended to the following business day. No penalty will be assessed as long as the report and payment are postmarked or filed electronically before midnight CST the next business day. That date is Monday, November 1st for this quarter.

Since the computation date for employer’s 2011 rate calculations is September 30, 2010, another section of the law applies. Only taxable payroll from reports filed and paid by October 31, 2010 is included in the 2011 rate calculation. That date is NOT extended; therefore, employers should plan on filing and making payment by October 31, 2010 to ensure proper credit in their rate calculation. Not getting credit for the third quarter taxable payroll could have a detrimental effect on the 2011 rate assignment.

Any unreported wages or unpaid taxes that remain delinquent as of October 31, 2010 will also not be included.
