What do state unemployment taxes (SUTA), state unemployment reserve balances and claim overpayment rates mean to your nonprofit?
These factors could mean less money for your nonprofit organization’s cause.
In order to rebuild New York’s diminishing state unemployment reserve fund, caused by the most recent recession, factors used in calculating employer unemployment rates were increased; therefore increasing the average unemployment tax cost per employee from $318 in 2009 to $447 by 2015.
The New York April 2014 – March 2015 unemployment claim overpayment rate was 7.086%, equaling over $178 million.
$10,700 New York’s unemployment wage base increased from $8,500 in 2013 to $10,300 in 2014 , and will continue to increase by $200-$300 each year through 2026; therefore increasing the wages on which employers pay SUTA on. Currently, the wage base is $10,700.
