Question and answer
All of the states allow employers to make voluntary contributions into their state unemployment fund so that a lower tax contribution rate would be assigned
The unemployment compensation program is financed almost entirely from employer taxes. Alaska and New Jersey also tax employees, and Pennsylvania and West Virginia require employee contributions under certain conditions. [ The federal tax is 6.2 percent of the first $7,000 in wages paid to each employee. Employers receive credit of up to 5.4 percent for the taxes they pay under state
unemployment compensation laws. . . . At the state level, benefits are financed from state-collected employer taxes which, through deposited in the U.S. Treasury, are always available to the state for benefit purposes. . . . Each employer is assigned a particular tax rate based on its experience with unemployment, in relation to the experience of other employers. Experience is measured by the state's experience-rating system. Most states use the reserve ratio system. The amount of benefits charged to an employer is deducted from the amount of taxes it paid. The balance is divided by the employer's potential liability for benefits. State laws provide a variety of circumstances under which employers may be relieved of benefit charges. .............. ]
