The mission of NH Employment Security's Unemployment Compensation Bureau is to pay benefits to eligible claimants temporarily unemployed or underemployed through no fault of their own, and to collect taxes from employers to fund these benefit payments. Each employer must file a Tax and Wage Report for every quarter after being found subject to the law. The report serves two purposes: to provide wage information about individual employees to be used in determining potential entitlement to benefits; and to establish the amount of taxable wages paid each quarter so that taxes due may be calculated and paid timely.
Beginning with the December 2013 quarter, all employers will see a decrease in their unemployment tax rates, as the second 0.5% Emergency Power surcharge under RSA 282-A:84 is being removed. In addition to the change in tax rates. The Taxable Wage Base remains at $14,000.
New Employer rates for the 2013-1, 2013-2, and 2013-3 quarters are 3.2% (includes 0.5% surcharge). The new employer tax rate for the 2013-4 quarter is 2.7% (no surcharge).
