New deadline for Form W-3

The Rhode Island Division of Taxation has adopted the federal filing deadline for purposes of employer reporting of personal income tax withheld.

As a result, employers must now file the annual Form RI-W3, “Reconciliation of Personal Income Tax Withheld by Employers,” one month earlier than before -- by January 31, instead of by February 28. In addition, employers must file the related Form W-2 information with the Division of Taxation by January 31, instead of by February 28.

The new Rhode Island deadline is the same as the new federal deadline and the deadline in many other states. For more information, click here.
