In recent years, several states and districts have seen changes made to their tax codes. The District of Columbia is no exception; as of January 11th, 2017, the Office of Tax and Revenue (OTR) has eliminated monthly D.C. withholding form return filing for local taxpayers. Meant to streamline the withholding and tax filing process for District business and employers, the new system is similar to the Federal 491 withholding process.
This change eliminated the need for FR 900M—the SUB Employer/Payer Withholding Tax Monthly Return. Rather than using this now obsolete form, employers are required to file the FR 900Q—the Employer/Payer Withholding Tax Quarterly Return. This decreases the number of times per year employers must file a withholding return. For the original announcement detailing this change, please see the statement provided by the District of Columbia Office of Tax and Revenue.
Though the DC Withholding Form has changed, the process of filing quarterly tax returns remains time-consuming and tedious. We want to fix that. Advanced Micro Solutions provides a range of accounting products meant to streamline your wage and tax reporting. Much of our software features back-end data management, meaning the information used for the original FR 900M will be easily transferred to your FR 900Q. Our products will save you time, money, and a great deal of stress.
