The State of California will not participate in the Federal Tax Deferral program proposed by the current administration via executive order on August 8th. The program allows for the deferral of withholding, deposit, and payment of payroll tax obligations for certain employees effective September 1, 2020 through the end of 2020. However, employees would experience a double withholding in 2021 to recover the taxes due. As a result the California State University system has opted out of the program.
