This webinar will review the necessary updates on where our unemployment system is and how this will affect the way payroll professionals will do their jobs now and into the future. For years the only changes payroll professionals had to worry about was normal rate changes for state unemployment each year. But in recent years the IRS has made updates to the federal Form 940 and states are in a much different position financially regarding unemployment benefits. Because several states are faced with depleted funds, changes are occurring on payroll unemployment taxes.
