FUTA TAX RATE
Effective July 1, 2011 the FUTA tax rate was reduced from 0.8 percent to 0.6 percent for all employers who pay FUTA liabilities. Payrolls with check dates prior to July 1, 2011 will pay the 0.8 percent and payrolls after this date will be calculated at the new 0.6 percent. (Note: the new 2011 940 form is not yet available from the IRS).
For 2011, employers are required to make a quarterly deposit if tax exceeds
$500.00 otherwise it is paid at the end of the year.
