for Employers

IMPORTANT!! Employers with a zero combined tax rate still need to file quarterly tax and wage reports on a timely basis every quarter. Late reports received are subject to penalties. Accounts with a delinquent tax report in late 2014 when tax rates for 2015 are calculated will be assigned the highest possible tax rate.
