Attention Employers - PA Unemployment Tax Rates May Be Incorrect

 

Each year, employers are provided with the current unemployment tax rate for employer contributions to the Pennsylvania Unemployment tax. Typically sent in December, the notices were sent in late February/early March 2012. These notices have created 2 problems for Pennsylvania employers – 
• Many of these notices are incorrect, adding a 3% tax for delinquencies that are non-existent
• Employers are unable to correctly calculate the rate for the first 2 months of the year as the notices were received so late
Pennsylvania CPAs are aware of the problem but many employers may not be. A local PICPA member can explain what affects the unemployment tax rate for each company, how employers can avoid paying the additional tax, and when they need to make the change to their rate – before they lose the ability to do so.
