Year-End Updates .
W-2's ARE ON THE WAY

Our team is hard at work processing your W-2's! Our goal is to get all W-2's to you on or before 1/25/2019. Because we are printing, packaging, and shipping around the clock, we cannot exception packages to accommodate expedited shipping requests.
1099 PROCESSING

If SDP is processing your 1099's this year, please submit your 1099 spreadsheet to Southland Data Processing no later than 1/11/2019 by 5 PM PST. Please note that any requests received after the deadline will incur an expedited processing fee of $75.
ACA DEADLINES

If you're using SDP's ACA Dashboard this year, don't forget to validate and submit your 1095-C's so we can begin printing, mailing, and filing. Keep in mind that we will begin print and mailing these forms on 1/18/2019, and e-filing begins on 2/4/2019. Read more
MINIMUM WAGE INCREASES

Beginning January 1, 2019, California minimum wage increased to $12.00 for businesses with 26+ employees and $11.00 for businesses with 25 or fewer employers. These rates take effect for all hours worked starting January 1. Read more
GOVERNMENT SHUTDOWN

Due to the government shutdown and IRS staff furloughs, live telephone assistance is currently unavailable at IRS call centers. Though this limits the assistance we can offer for federal tax notices and inquires requiring IRS agent assistance, we will be able to provide updates on all IRS cases once normal federal operations resume.
