What should I know about doing payroll in San Diego?

San Diego has its own local tax laws (San Diego property tax) but also follows both state (California sales and income tax) and federal tax laws (FICA). This coupled with the state's stringent employee-protection laws, and payroll can become a nightmare.

For example, California's income tax rates are based on income brackets and range from between 1.25% and 10.55%. Another example would be the Sick Leave and Minimum Wage Ordinances, which state that employees must earn one hour of sick leave for every thirty hours worked in the city. As of January 1, 2019, the City's minimum wage is $12.00 per hour.
