How Do I Determine Whether Or Not I Am Liable For Unemployment Taxes?

An employer is liable for unemployment taxes if that employer either,

    in any calendar quarter in either the current or preceding calendar year paid wages for services in employment of $1,500 or more, or
      had in employment at least one individual for some portion of a day in each of twenty different weeks, not necessarily consecutive, in either the current or preceding calendar year.
