2018 will bring more requirements by states for a boost in unemployment insurance electronic payment and wage reports.
In Nevada, the Department of Employment, Training and Rehabilitation seeks comments on a proposed amendment to the administrative code that would require all employers to electronically file unemployment insurance contribution and wage reports, effective July 1, 2018.
The increased use of electronic payments and wage reports by states for unemployment insurance is expected to be adopted in 2018.
Electronic filing is not now required for Nevada employers. Unemployment insurance tax payments for amounts greater than $10,000 are processed through the state’s automated clearing house.
If the amendment is adopted, Nevada would join 19 states that require electronic filing for unemployment insurance for employers in 2018. The states are Alabama, California, Connecticut, Idaho, Iowa, Louisiana, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, New Jersey, New Mexico, New York, North Dakota, Oklahoma, Pennsylvania, Texas, and Vermont.
Expanded Employer Requirements
California and North Dakota are expected to expand electronic filing for unemployment insurance and for making tax payments in 2018.
California requires employers with at least 10 employees to file reports and submit payments electronically. Effective Jan. 1, 2018, employers are to file UI tax reports and pay those taxes electronically.
