Industrial U.I. Shares Insights on Twitter About Unemployment Insurance Tax Laws


Industrial U.I. recently took part in an informative Twitter chat about unemployment insurance tax laws. The Twitter chat helped others develop a better understanding of how unemployment insurance tax laws can affect their business. The chat took place on Tuesday, December 13th, 2016 and received a great deal of response from corporate leaders and business owners.

During the chat session, the company informed users about the basics of unemployment insurance – especially that employers must pay state and federal unemployment tax in order to fund the unemployment tax system.

Another topic was, how to know if your organization should pay tax or reimburse the state dollar for dollar, and the mechanisms for properly protesting claims. Some of the more specific topics covered in the chat were:

  • Do you understand basic unemployment insurance tax laws?
  • Do you know how the IRS calculates your UI tax rate?
  • What’s the difference between being an experience rated or benefit reimbursed employer?

There were other important topics discussed. Here is a small portion of the Twitter chat:
