Thank you for your question. Please permit me to assist you with your concerns.The employee would need to contact the agency in the state where they reside, which would be Florida. They would need to disclose that they worked for an entity that paid taxes in a different state, and then the agency itself would contact the other state and pursue a portion of the funds as a means to pay for part of the benefits. The checks would still come from Florida, but the funds would be both from Florida and New Hampshire based on your employee's employment history and eligibility.Good luck.
Thanks, XXXXX XXXXX I wrong to pay it to NH instead of Florida? (Moving forward.)
Thank you for your follow-up, and you are most welcome.To be honest, that was not the correct place to pay tax. You generally have to pay employment tax based on where the employee is located in, and if they reside in Florida and work there, that is where taxes should be paid for wages--other taxes still get paid to the state where you are incorporated in.Good luck.
