March 29: Utah has passed a law (SB 39) that amends how nonresidents working in Utah are taxed. The “mobile workforce” income tax bill addresses the tax liability and withholding requirements for a nonresident individual earning wages in the state. This bill creates an exemption from income tax if a nonresident individual works in the state for 20 or fewer days during a taxable year and provides the circumstances that the individual’s resident state provides a substantially similar exclusion or does not impose a state individual income tax.

March 25:  Two California cities have minimum wage increases coming in July:

  • Emeryville, California: The city’s minimum wage rate will increase to $17.68 per hour effective July 1, 2022.
  • Pasadena, California: The minimum wage rate for Pasadena will increase to $16.11 per hour on July 1, 2022.

March 9:  The Department of Transportation has released the applicable terminal charge and the Standard Industry Fare Level (SIFL) mileage rates for determining the value of noncommercial flights on employer-provided aircraft in effect for the first half of 2022 for purposes of the taxation of fringe benefits. The unadjusted rates for flights taken during the period from January 1, 2022, through June 30, 2022are as follows:

  • $.2460 per mile for the first 500 miles
  • $.1876 per mile 501 through 1,500 miles
  • $.1803 per mile over 1,500 miles
  • terminal charge is $44.98

Daily News Updates for February

A bit more of a change up for the new year.  Several of my followers have noted that having one blog for news updates per month would be easier rather than breaking it up by week.  To further refine my new blogs I will do one for each month, in this case February, and update daily as my news letters go out.  I hope you find this helpful.

 

February 22, 2022:  I have not posted for a while as the news has been really slow.  But it is coming back now that year end is over and legislatures are coming back to work.  Today we have the minimum wage increase for airport workers in Houston, TX.

The Mayor has signed an Executive Order that will raise the minimum wage for Houston airport workers to the following:

  • $13.00 per hour, eff. April 1, 2022
  • $14.00 per hour, eff. Oct. 1, 2022
  • $15.00 per hour, eff. Oct. 1, 2023.

 

February 3, 2022: Pennsylvania: The Department of Revenue has announced on its website that due to the very high volume of users attempting to upload large volumes of information simultaneously, e-TIDES, the Department of Revenue’s online business tax filing system, has been experiencing technical issues. As a result, the department has extended the filing deadline for W2s, 1099s, and the REV-1667 to February 4, 2022.
