California Boosts Income Tax Collection 10 Percent

Monday, 02 Nov 2009 05:08 PM

California wage earners will soon notice a little less money in their paychecks.

Starting Monday, employers in the cash-strapped state are required to withhold 10 percent more in state income taxes to help ease the budget problems.

It's part of a plan to artificially inflate state revenue by $1.7 billion through next June.

Brenda Voet, a spokeswoman for the state Franchise Tax Board, says it's technically not a tax increase since workers will get their money back after April 15.

A single wage earner making $51,000 a year with no dependents will get about $4 less a week.
