What Tax Rate Will I Be Required To Pay?

A standard rate will be assigned to all new employers until the employer has paid taxes for six calendar quarters prior to the yearly computation date of June 30. The employer will then be assigned a rate based on the employer's own experience rating.

Another method of paying is cost reimbursement, which is available to certain non­profit organizations and all governmental agencies. Under this method, employers reimburse the state for the actual cost of unemployment benefits paid. Non­profit organizations and governmental agencies may choose to report as cost reimbursement employers or experience rated employers.
