What should I know about doing payroll in Charlotte?

Charlotte does not currently have local tax laws that will complicate doing payroll. However, you will still need to withhold state and federal income tax for those employees.

Employers in Charlotte are required to withhold paid unemployment insurance. The unemployment insurance rate is determined on an employer by employer basis and ranges from 0.06% to 5.76%.

Charlotte does not have any reciprocal agreements with other states. There are no local minimum wage laws either. Instead, they fall under state minimum wage laws, which put it at $2.13 per hour for tipped workers and $7.25 per hour for all others.
