NJDOLWD Unveils Unemployment Insurance Payroll Tax Increase

219th Legislative Session Legislative Updates Workforce Updates
On August 13, the New Jersey Department of Labor & Workforce Development posted a "Notice of Employer Contribution Rates" for fiscal year 2021-2022. Employers will start making an increased payment Oct. 30, when the payroll tax for the third quarter (July 30 -September 30) is due. Employer contribution rates for FY21-22 will be changing to Tax Table C.
This change is projected to result in a $250 million hike in unemployment insurance payroll taxes to replenish the Unemployment Insurance (UI) Fund, which has been depleted during the COVID-19 pandemic.
The CCSNJ has called for and will continue to urge the Governor’s administration to use federal funds towards Unemployment Insurance Fund replenishment to assist New Jersey's recovering businesses.
