I have several part-time jobs, and one of them refuses to take out CA state income tax. I've submitted the forms twice to my local office have it done, to no avail. I've had this problem before, and when I submit the forms, it gets done, but this one just isn't getting the message.

I've called corporate payroll, and the person that takes care of San Diego doesn't answer the phone, nor return phone calls. I have three calls into HR today (three different people), so I'm curious to see if anyone returns my call.

Any suggestions would be appreciated.

If your part time jobs pay's less than a certain amount you would have no state tax liability. Your employer only assumes you have one job so they won't withold any state tax. I have a 2nd part time job that I make around $20,000 a year at. 50% goes to 401k so only $10k is taxable. Even at single 0 in CA they were withholding $0 per pay period. You have to fill out the additional witholdings section to make them withold a certain amount.

I can see how that would be frustrating. Perhaps a solution might be to increase withholding at one of your other jobs.

Write a snail-mail letter to head of payroll/HR at the corporate address.
CC to their boss.
Send it certified.

And the underlings aren't doing their job correctly, if they are missing this box.

It doesn't work that way. All of my jobs are hourly and seasonal, so my hours vary, depending on the season.

It would never get seen. This is a nationwide company.

Ha - Then send it addressed to "Customer Complaint Department"



If you've filled out paperwork twice - fill out another one. Take a big red marker and circle additional withholdings section.

Doesn't work with this company, and I highlighted it in yellow the last time, and wrote on the top that it was imperative that they deduct state taxes.

When I got this job, I filled out, printed out the W-4, DE-4, and I-9 myself, because my handwriting isn't so great, plus it's easier for them to read.

I just called and got the name of the head of payroll, and left her a message. That's four phone calls/messages today. I'm curious to see if anyone calls me back by tomorrow.

How much do you owe at tax time? Enough to pay a penalty?

You could take the amount you wanted to pay through withholding and deposit it into a savings account.
