Were you aware that your state unemployment tax rate may change from year to year? Each year, your state employment security commission mails your annual tax rate to your place of business. It is crucial that you forward your rate each year to your Account Manager either by mail, email, or fax.

If we do not have the correct rate in the system, you could be over or underpaying your unemployment tax. If you have not forwarded your rate to us yet, please make sure you do so before your last payroll of the quarter. Our system will automatically make the adjustment, and your 1st quarter reports will be correct. However, if we do not receive your rate before the last payroll of first quarter, amended returns may be necessary.

If you have any questions, or did not receive your rate from the ESC just give us a call at (704) 921-2730 or send an email to payroll@directpaypayroll.com. We will be happy to assist you with obtaining your rate from the proper authority.
