How Are Federal Unemployment Tax (Futa) And State Unemployment Tax (Suta) Related?

Employers liable to a state(s) for unemployment insurance tax receive FUTA credit for timely tax payments made to the state(s). The FUTA tax rate is 6.2% of the taxable payroll. Regardless of the state tax rate assigned, employers receive credit at a rate of 5.4% of their North Carolina taxable payroll for timely tax payments. Employers then pay .8% directly to the Internal Revenue Service for FUTA tax.
