Once the annual wage base has been satisfied for an employee, the employer does not owe any more SUTA tax for that employee for the year. SUTA Tax Rate: These tax rates are based on varying factors, with the most common being whether the business is new, the employer’s industry (such as construction versus nonconstruction), and the amount of benefits claimed on the employer’s account. Generally, the more benefits claimed on the employer’s account, the higher the SUTA tax rate, which is why it’s crucial that you keep turnover at a minimum. Not Always Only an Employer-Paid Tax In most states, SUTA is an employer-paid tax. Three states — Pennsylvania, New Jersey, and Alaska — require withholding as well. If you have employees in any of these three states, you must withhold state unemployment tax from their wages at the state-mandated withholding rate and up to the maximum amount of wages allowed for the year.

Could Your Books Withstand A Tax Audit?

Taxes, The Sharing Economy and You

If you’ve ever used–or provided services for– Uber, Lyft, Airbnb, Etsy, Rover or TaskRabbit, then you’re a member of the sharing economy; and it could affect your taxes. But, there is good news: if you’ve only used these services (not provided them), then there’s no need to worry about the tax implications.

However, if you’ve rented out a spare room in your house – through a company like Airbnb, then you need to be aware of the tax consequences. You may not realize that the extra income you’re making could impact your taxable income–especially if you have a full-time job with an employer.
