Arizona Unemployment Tax Rates Changing
Arizona tax rates for some employers will be changing effective July
1, 2011. As a result of the reduced federal unemployment tax rate effective
July 1, 2011, employers that were exempt from the 0.1% Job Training Tax (JTT) will
be required to pay it effective with the third quarter, 2011 quarterly returns.
Any JTT exemptions prior to July 1, 2011 are unaffected. Therefore, tax-rated
employers who were not subject to the JTT during Quarters 1 and 2 of 2011 will pay
the surcharge due on those quarters at a rate of 0.40% (includes only the 0.40% HB2619
Special Assessment). All tax-rated employers will pay the surcharge due on quarters
3 and 4 of 2011 at a rate of 0.50% (this includes the 0.40% HB 2619 Special Assessment
plus the 0.10% JTT). A newsletter that explains the FUTA tax rate/Job Training
Tax change will be enclosed with the Quarter 3 UC-018 mailing which will be mailed
out in batches from mid to late September 2011.
