U.S. and Canadian Updates

In the U.S. and Canada, there were numerous tax, legal and regulatory updates required by various state, local and provincial agencies.

For the U.S., Rimini Street delivered tax, legal, and regulatory updates at the state and local levels. At the state level, updates include percentage method withholding tables for Idaho and Ohio. Idaho also increased its annual withholding allowance, while Michigan increased its minimum wage. Numerous local tax updates were also provided for municipalities in Kentucky, New York, Ohio and Pennsylvania. For Pennsylvania Act 32 reporting which requires uniform withholding of earned income taxes (EIT), additional counties were migrated from paper filing to electronic filing. In preparation for year-end 2014 reporting, modifications were also delivered to support new state Employer Identification Number (EIN) formats.

For clients in Canada, Rimini Street delivered tax changes to restore the Novia Scotia Harmonized Sales Tax Rate to 15 percent after a reduction to 14 percent was postponed by the government.
