What is SUTA?

SUTA tax rates and requirements vary by state

The State Unemployment Tax Act is a type of payroll tax

State unemployment insurance (also known as SUI or SUTA) is a program funded by payroll taxes and paid for by employers to give short-term benefits to workers who have lost their job due to no fault of their own.

States determine tax rates specific to your business

SUTA (or SUI) tax rates are set by each state, and vary depending on an employer's industry and time in operation. When you register for a SUTA tax account, the state will tell you what your business’s rate will be—and will continue to assign new rates as you gain more employer experience.
