Employee Withholding

If you will have employees, you will need to know your duties for withholding tax

Section 1151 of Title 30 of the Delaware Code requires every employer who, 1) maintains an office or transacts business within Delaware, and 2) who makes payments of wages or other remuneration to residents or non –residents which are taxable in Delaware and which are subject to withholding under the Internal revenue Code; must withhold from those wages or remuneration an amount substantially equivalent to the tax estimated to be due from the employee. The Delaware Code does not specifically define the terms "wages" or "other remuneration" which are subject to withholding. Delaware withholding is required provided such payments are subject to withholding under the Internal Revenue Code.
