Your Federal Unemployment Tax Rate is fixed. It changes infrequently. Learn more here.
Your State unemployment rate is sent to you each year by every State in which you have a reported employee. If you use a payroll provider (like GetPayroll!) be sure to send them your new rate each year to avoid penalty and fees for underpayment. If you are a GetPayroll client, we will email you twice at year-end as reminders to send us your new rate.
Each State also has a default rate for new employers and should let you know what that is when you register and get your State Unemployment Tax ID.
