ETS Tax intelligence: Mitigation of Overpaid SUI Tax
There are numerous ways that employers are at risk for overpaying state unemployment insurance (“SUI”) tax. This is especially true with employers that operate in multiple taxing jurisdictions and/or have employees performing services in more than one state or jurisdiction during a calendar year.
To avoid or mitigate overpaid unemployment taxes, an employer must first identify areas of potential risk. Once identified, these risks can be quantified to determine the amount of effort, if any, that should be expended to mitigate retroactively and avoid prospectively.
