Please follow the steps below when you receive a rate change letter:

1.Review each Contribution Rate Determination letter when you receive it from your state unemployment agency. Each state sends their rate changes at different times so you may not have received this information yet.

2.Email or fax the rate change letter to your payroll specialist prior to the effective date stated on the letter. If the rate on your letter has not changed, please still send to your specialist to update the tax with a 2012 effective date.

For state unemployment rate questions, please contact the appropriate state unemployment agency. Use the following link to find agency contact information for each state: www.americanpayroll.org/weblink/statelocal-wider/
