This bill would, for taxable years beginning on or after January 1, 2015, exclude tips, as defined, from gross income for the purposes of the Personal Income Tax Law. This bill also would exclude tips from the definition of wages paid for employment for the purposes of income tax withholding and for purposes of unemployment insurance and the employment training tax. This bill would also make related changes to other provisions.
