In 2015, Florida employers will see a decrease in their state unemployment taxes (now referred to as reemployment taxes).
|Minimum Tax Rate:||$30 per employee/per year||$16.80 per employee/per year|
|Maximum Tax Rate:||$432 per employee/per year||$378 per employee/per year|
Employers that have an experience-based tax rate that falls somewhere between the minimum and maximum tax rates should also see similar decreases.
The Wage base for each employee will also be decreasing for 2015. Employers will now pay reemployment tax only on the first $7,000 of an employee’s wages. Any amount over $7,000 of the employee’s wages is not subject to state reemployment tax.
The Florida Department of Revenue mailed out a 2015 reemployment tax rate notice to all employers in January. The rate listed on the notice will be effective for wages paid on or after January 1, 2015.
