California State Form DE 9C

What is the DE 9C?

The state of California requires CA companies to file both a Quarterly Contribution Return and Report of Wages (DE 9) and the Quarterly Contribution Return and Report of Wages (Continuation) (DE 9C) each quarter.

Employers may be confused thinking the DE 9 or DE 9C is the Federal 941 form. However, it is not. If they filed the DE 9C they must also file the Federal 941, 943, or 944 form.
