How frequently will the filing frequency be evaluated?

An employer’s filing frequency for state income tax withholding is determined each calendar year by the combined amount of state and school district taxes that were withheld or required to be withheld during the 12-month period ending June 30 of the preceding calendar year (i.e., total state and school district income tax withheld for           7/1/16 – 6/30/17 will determine the 2018 filing frequency).
