Discussions and Actual Progress Continues with DIR –
Incidentally, if you opened your WSTA newsletter email on August 15, you would have read this: “WSTA is working with DIR to help owner-operators report electronic certified payroll records affecting the transportation industry. WSTA is able to provide valuable feedback that will create an electronic certified payroll reporting mechanism that will make sense to owner-operators. In addition, WSTA is working to provide more meaningful Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ’s) that will clear up confusion when projects trigger Public Works (PW) requirements, which projects are exempt from PW requirements and to provide better reporting tools for owner-operators. For owner-operator (non-employees) reporting certified payment electronically, the DIR is working on a new form/standard and there remains much confusion as to how and what to report. We hope to have this resolved with the DIR within 30 days.” We are now working on a list of trucking Public Workers Q&A’s that we plan to submit to the DIR. We will also be providing a variety of suggested changes to the DIR’s Registration website and hopefully a realistic wage reporting form for owner-operators. Read more
