FUTA Payroll Tax Deduction

The Unemployment system is funded jointly by Federal and State funds collected through payroll taxes. The FUTA payroll tax deduction provides these funds.

The Federal Unemployment Tax Act (FUTA) provides the funds for State workers services and unemployment services. This system provides the funds used for unemployment benefits. The tax is paid by employers. It is not actually a deduction from the employee's paycheck nor are they responsible for it. Employers are responsible for this tax if they either pay a total of $1500 in wages in any given quarter of the year or if they have an employee working at least one day of the week during any 20 weeks of the year.

Domestic employees include maids, housekeepers, gardeners, and babysitters employed in a home. The employer must pay FUTA taxes for them if their pay totals at least $1000 in any quarter of the year. For both agricultural and domestic workers, the tax rate is the same at 6.2% with a credit of 5.4%. The maximum tax due for any ...
