2011 Taxable Wage Bases
A “taxable wage base” is the annual amount of wages paid by an employer to an employee
that are subjected to certain payroll taxes. There are three primary employment taxes
which are impacted by a wage limit – FICA, FUTA and state unemployment (SUI) tax.
State unemployment taxes are employer-paid taxes and the amount of wages subject to
tax varies by state. Employers must consider wage base changes as they budget for
2011 employment tax costs.
