Monthly filing and payment is required if an employer has withheld with respect to a municipality more than $2,399 in the immediately preceding calendar year, or more than $200 in any one month in the immediately preceding calendar quarter.  The due date for Monthly filers is the 15th day of the month following the month withheld.

Quarterly Filing and Payment
Quarterly filing and payment is required if an employer has withheld with respect to a municipality $2,399 or less in the immediately preceding calendar year, or $200 or less for each month in the immediately preceding calendar quarter.  The due date for Quarterly filers is the 15th day of the month following the end of the quarter.
