What is Form DE9C? (back to top)

Form DE9C is the quarterly wage and withholding report for California employers. The form is used to report wage and payroll tax withholding information for California employers. In a way, it is the California equivalent of the Form 941 except the detailed withholding for each employee is reported. The DE6 form replaces the requirement of W2 filing with California. A DE6 contains the State tax withholding information for all California employees.

When is Form DE9C due? (back to top)

Form DE9C is due at quarter end and becomes delinquent one month after that. It is on the same schedule as the form 941 for Federal.

How do I make a payment for Form DE9C? What is the DE88 payment coupon? (back to top)

Payment coupon DE88 is used to deposit the payroll tax withholding.
