How do I get my unemployment tax rate?

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.
