California – New Employment Credit Vouchering Deadlines and Due Dates

SALT Report 3316 – The New Employment Credit (Replacing the expired EZ hiring credit) effective January 1, 2014 is being administered by the Franchise Tax Board.  The FTB has established an employee certification portal with the due date for calendar year filers beginning March 15, 2015.

Fiscal Year taxpayers will have earlier reporting due dates.  For example, a fiscal year end March 31, 2014 taxpayers’ certification due date for employees hired between January 1, 2014 and March 31, 2014 is April 15, 2014.  FYE June 30, 2014 taxpayer due date is July 15, 2014.

The certification process is new and it is NOT retroactive.  If you don’t certify your employee through this system no credit will be available.
