Time To Distribute Federal & State Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC) Notices!
When must I send these? Within one week of the delivery of W-2 or 1099 forms.
Who gets it? Every individual receiving a W-2 or 1099.
What are acceptable methods of delivery? Issued by hand-delivery or by mail to the last known address. Simply posting on a bulletin board or sending via electronic communication will not meet the requirements.
Caution: Do not assume that your payroll provider will include the EITC notice with the issued W-2 or 1099 forms. It is the responsibility of each employer to ensure both the Federal and California notices are provided.
HR Ninja’s advice: We suggest distributing the notice along with the W-2 and 1099 forms. For your records, keep a copy of the items sent and make note of the method of delivery.
Current clients, we’ve got you covered. See your email or contact your HR Ninja for sample forms and required notices.
*Some states have similar EITC notice requirements, similar to California and Oregon: Illinois, Louisiana, Maryland, New Jersey, Texas, Virginia, and the city of Philadelphia.
