    Read SUI rate change notifications

    Overview

    State Unemployment Insurance (SUI) rates change periodically for a variety of reasons. Your state agency notifies you for every SUI rate change.

    This article provides examples of unemployment rate notices from each state. Each example also provides instructions on how to locate the rate on the tax notices and enter it in QuickBooks.

    For instructions on how to change your State Unemployment Insurance rate in QuickBooks, select the article that applies to your Payroll Service:

    Note: Companies may have a zero ETT rate if the state notifies them so. This is a determination by the company's reserve ratio at the state. These companies typically have a state unemployment rate of 6.2%. If we are tracking ETT wages, it is still important that the wage base match the SUI.

    • KY - Unemployment Company (SUI) = Assigned UI Rate
    • KY Surcharge* (SUR) = The Surcharge Rate is 0.22%.  If the employer is a reimbursable employer, the Surcharge Rate is 0.0%.
      Effective January 1, 2014, Kentucky will be adding a NEW Surcharge.  It is called Surcharge. This rate is separated from the SUI tax rate.

      *Kentucky SUI rate notifications for 2014 do not have the NEW Surcharge tax information provided in them.  The agency has stated that the Surcharge is completely separate from the SUI tax rate, so they did not include the Surcharge information in the rate notifications for 2014.

    All this information was very helpful, however it's March and I don't think we have received our rate information in NJ yet. Is this unusual?

    MN UI has an assessment on the unemployment tax, which released each March. My question is, how can this assessment % be put into QB. (UI tax x Assessment %)

    Thanks
