    Default Working for GA Co. from home in OR

    We have a branch of our company in Georgia (it has its own separate FEIN). I have an employee who has lived and worked in Georgia for the last several years, but has just moved to Oregon and will continue to perform work for the Georgia facility from his home. Under which state should his payroll taxes be withheld?

    Thanks,

    He's working in Oregon, your company has probably established nexus in the state and, as such, you would be an Oregon employer subject to all Oregon tax (and labor) laws. I would note that Georgia is notorious for basically not having ANY labor laws of its own; Oregon is much different.

    If you aren't already there, here is a site which is focused almost solely on payroll issues.
