EY's state guide to COVID-19 payroll and employment tax provisions is updated through August 15, 2020

To contain the outbreak of COVID-19 in the US, numerous states and local governments temporarily closed nonessential businesses and issued "stay-at-home" orders, creating a historic disruption to the US workforce.

Most states and localities have responded to the emergency by expanding their paid leave mandates; waiving certain reporting requirements; expanding unemployment insurance benefits; providing extensions on the due date of payroll tax returns, tax payments or both; and/or temporarily halting certain garnishment orders.

In our publication, COVID-19: state guide to payroll andemployment tax provisions, many of these state and local payroll and employment tax developments are categorized by state and topic for ease in navigation.

This publication has been updated through August 15, 2020. Future updates will be published monthly.
