The Unemployment Tax program collects wage information and unemployment taxes from employers.
The wage information determines the amount of unemployment benefits claimants may receive. Unemployment taxes support the Unemployment Compensation Fund. Unemployment benefits are paid from the fund.
Employers must register for a tax account within ten days of becoming a liable employer. Employers can visit Determine Whether You Need to Establish an Unemployment Tax Account for details.
Quarterly wage reports and taxes are due by the last day of the month following the end of the calendar quarter. Employers can visit Tax Report & Payment Due Dates for details.
