Voluntary Plan Tax Reporting

EDD approved VP Employers do not need to send in State Disability Insurance (SDI) contributions for employees covered under a Voluntary Plan (VP). But, you must send SDI contributions for employees who choose SDI coverage.

To comply with the e-file and e-pay mandate, you are required to electronically submit your employment tax returns, wage reports, and payroll tax deposits to the EDD.

File Online

e-Services for Business is a fast, easy, and secure way to manage employer payroll tax accounts online.

If you are unable to file online, you may qualify for a waiver. For more information on waiver requests, visit E-file and E-pay Mandate.


The following commonly used VP tax forms can be submitted online through e-Services for Business:

  1. Quarterly Contribution Return (DE 3D)
    1. Report quarterly wages, withholdings, and for the computation of the VP assessment.
    2. VP employers are required to complete this form.
