As An Employer, How Do I Know If I Am Liable For Unemployment Taxes?

Employers are liable if, for the current or the preceding calendar year, wages of $1500 or more are paid in a calendar quarter; or, if during this or the preceding calendar year one or more workers have worked in at least 20 weeks of a calendar year. (The 20 weeks need not be consecutive and any work in part of a day is counted.)
