Thomas & Company has a proven track record of helping you achieve outstanding results, refunds, and tax savings by managing your unemployment taxes.
Our Comprehensive Approach Includes:
TAX RATE VERIFICATION AND PROJECTIONS
Every year, tax rate notices are issued and, if an error occurs by a state agency (or multiple), your company could pay thousands more in unemployment taxes than you should. Our dedicated tax team reviews every unemployment tax rate notice, assessing your taxable wages, benefit charges, and (if applicable) reserve account balance against state records, uncovering errors, and filing rate appeals on your behalf. We can also help you in planning for the future by forecasting unemployment tax rates for the following tax year.
VOLUNTARY CONTRIBUTIONS AND JOINT ACCOUNT ANALYSIS
In states that allow options to reduce your overall unemployment tax burden, our team evaluates your unemployment accounts and makes relevant recommendations. From paying down your unemployment tax rate(s) through voluntary tax payment(s) to assisting with the formation of beneficial joint unemployment tax accounts, we help you maximize your tax savings each year.
MERGERS, ACQUISITIONS, AND REORGANIZATIONS
Tax reporting requirements for statutory mergers, acquisitions, reorganizations, and divestitures are complex and vary by state. If the transaction is not disclosed or an error is made in reporting these changes, this can result in penalty tax rates, unemployment tax penalties and interest charges, or missed unemployment tax saving opportunities. Thomas & Company removes the burden from your payroll department by working directly with state agencies to ensure the transaction and unemployment tax rate transfers are processed timely and accurately.
