Employers Tax Filing Information on State Unemployment Tax Reduction & Federal Credit Reduction is Now Available.

CTDOL Tax Unit Employer Notification on 2022 FUTA Credit Reduction & 2023 State Unemployment Tax Reduction

States with outstanding federal unemployment loans are subject to increased federal taxes for employers. CT Public Act 22-118 contains a provision reducing the state unemployment tax rates by 0.2% for 2023. This rate reduction lessens the impact of the 0.3% federal tax increase for employers that are paying the state unemployment tax in 2023. To allow employers to budget for the federal tax increases and minimize retroactive adjustments, CTDOL is providing this information to employers in advance of the IRS notice.
