New process for cash payroll tax payments


California employers can now make payroll tax payments and meet the electronic payment requirements through the PayNearMe system, available at retail locations like 7-11 and CVS. (EDD News Release 19-140 (November 13, 2019)) Employers can make cash payroll tax payments up to $1,000 per transaction and $2,500 per day, up to $10,000 per month. There is a fee of $5.99 per transaction.

Employers who want to pay in cash will download a barcode from the PayNearMe website and present that barcode to the cashier at the payment location of choice.

The exact process is on the EDD’s website at:
