Unemployment Updates:Unemployment tax season is quickly approaching! The Ohio Department of Job and Family Services (ODJFS) will mail the 2017 Contribution Rate Determination to employers later this month. You have only 30 days from the mailing date of the notification to appeal the new tax rate if there are discrepancies in the information used to determine the rate. Most employers have an opportunity to buy down this rate by making a voluntary contribution by 12/30/2016. Businesses which are commonly owned may find that applying for a common rate group can reduce their unemployment tax liability. Applications for common rate groupings and for discontinuance of current groupings must also be filed with ODJFS by 12/30/2016.Understanding this tax notice and your various options is critical in helping to control your unemployment expenses.
