Open States' stated mission is to improve civic engagement.

To be true to that goal, we can not stand by and be silent when a large portion of Americans face systemic racism and other forms of oppression. That oppression has meant being excluded from civic participation at the ballot box, being called un-American for peaceful protests, and being denied justice for crimes committed against them.

Please consider giving to local causes that support racial justice in your area.

Abstract

 Existing law requires the Franchise Tax Board to prepare wage withholding tables to be used by employers for purposes of withholding taxes on wages paid. Existing law allows, in lieu of the withholding tables, withholding at a rate of 6% with respect to supplemental wages and at a rate of 9.3% with respect to stock options and bonus payments. This bill would, for wages paid on or after November 1, 2009, require the wage withholding tables to produce a sum that is equal to 10% more than the sum specified for purposes of the withholding tables. This bill would, also increase the withholding rates to 6.6% for supplemental wages and to 10.23% for stock options and bonus payments paid on or after November 1, 2009.  Existing income tax laws require specified individuals to pay estimated income taxes in installments and impose additional liability for underpayments. This bill would adjust the amount of those installments under specified circumstances. The Personal Income Tax Law and the Corporation Tax Law impose a penalty for underpayment of estimated tax. Existing law provides for a credit based on taxes withheld on wages, in modified conformity with federal income tax laws, against the estimated tax payments, including a provision that "an equal part" of that amount is deemed paid on each due date for a taxable year. This bill would substitute "the applicable percentage," as defined, for "an equal part" under this provision, as provided. The California Constitution authorizes the Governor to declare a fiscal emergency and to call the Legislature into special session for that purpose. The Governor issued a proclamation declaring a fiscal emergency, and calling a special session for this purpose, on July 1, 2009. This bill would state that it addresses the fiscal emergency declared by the Governor by proclamation issued on July 1, 2009, pursuant to the California Constitution.
