How Are Tax Rates Determined?

The tax an employer pays depends on the size of the employer's taxable payroll, the employer's unemployment insurance tax rate and the taxable wage base. The taxable wage base is $8,500 and, for calendar year 2002, the minimum and maximum tax rates are .3% and 8.2%.

The Department assigns Delaware employers one of four tax rates. These rates include, 1) the new employer rate ­ non­construction, 2) the new employer rate ­ construction, 3) an experience (merit) rate, or 4) the delinquency rate.
