What is the estimated percentage an employer should budget for payroll taxes in California?


The BIDaWIZ Team's Answer:

California state payroll rates vary by income, but the two state payroll taxes the employer pays include the state unemployment insurance and the employment training tax. The state unemployment insurance rate is 3.4% for new employers and can range from 1.6% to 6.2% for existing employers. The ETT tax is minimal at 0.1%. Thus, you can expect to pay in total about 3.5% on average. This doesn't account of federal employer payroll taxes such as Social Security (7.65%) and Medicare Tax (1.45%).
