Employee tax in two states

This answer was rated:

My business is in SC. We have an employee who lives in GA. Are we required to deduct and pay both SC and GA payroll taxes?
Do you have an office or a business location in GA? Is the employee working from home office?
Customer: replied 8 years ago.
No office or business location in GA. She frequently brings work home to finish, however our office is in Bath SC where she works. Of course, Georgia wants the tax money, and they want it tomorrow. So I really need advise today.

Since you do not have any business presence in GA, you are not required to register for employment in GA and deduct payroll taxes and pay to the State. You may do so to accomodate your employee.

Your employee, however, is required to make arrangements to pay the State tax in GA.
