Taxable Employers Rate Notices

18 June 2021

Each year at the end of June, the Department of Labor mails rate notices to taxable employers. The rate notice includes benefit charges and taxable payroll for the last three calendar years along with the rate calculation which takes effect on July 1.

There were a variety of changes that were made to the unemployment insurance program throughout the pandemic which included removing 2020 benefit charges and taxable payroll from the rate calculation. As a result, there will be a delay in mailing out rate notices to employers. If you do not receive a rate notice before July 1, it is likely due to the delay.

A follow up email will be sent to you directly when all rate notices have been mailed out.
