Voluntary Plan Tax Reporting

EDD approved VP Employers do not need to send in State Disability Insurance (SDI) contributions for employees covered under a Voluntary Plan (VP). But, you must send SDI contributions for employees who choose SDI coverage.

To comply with the e-file and e-pay mandate, you are required to electronically submit your employment tax returns, wage reports, and payroll tax deposits to the EDD.

File Online

e-Services for Business is a fast, easy, and secure way to manage employer payroll tax accounts online.

  1. Quarterly Contribution Return (DE 3D)
