Learn how to update your State Unemployment Insurance (SUI) rate in QuickBooks Online Payroll or QuickBooks Desktop Payroll.
Your state sets your SUI rate. This rate is unique to your business. If you’re a new employer, your state assigns you a new employer rate until you file unemployment taxes for a certain period of time.
Whenever your SUI rate changes, you need to update it in payroll. This keeps your SUI tax liability accurate. We'll show you how.
|Note: State Unemployment Insurance is only paid by the employer, unless your state is AK, NJ, or PA that requires employees to contribute.
