In light of a still struggling economy, the unemployment insurance system is under pressure to pay back Title XII loans and increase trust fund solvency. Although Congress has passed an extension of unemployment benefits through February 29, 2012, it remains unclear whether further extensions will continue through the end of 2012. With great uncertainty surrounding what congressional actions (if any) will be taken to offer employers relief from FUTA credit reductions and Title XII interest assessments, it also remains to be seen what steps will be taken to bring the unemployment insurance system back into balance.

Due to these costly and uncertain circumstances, states are taking action to increase unemployment taxes, with increases expected to affect employers over the next five to ten years. Now more than ever, it is crucial that employers understand the impact of potential legislation, plan for significant tax increases and identify potential tax savings opportunities to effectively manage unemployment costs.

During this complimentary “Unemployment Tax Briefing,” TALX Unemployment Cost Management experts will address these issues and explain what they mean for employers. Attendees will learn about the implications of federal decisions, the specific state legislative changes that impact employers, and some unemployment cost management strategies employers can take to reduce rising taxes.

Payroll, HR and tax personnel who are concerned about the impact of associated legislative activity and want to learn how they can better manage rising unemployment tax costs are encouraged to attend this hour-long educational session. Members of the American Payroll Association and Certified Payroll Professionals are eligible for RCH credits.

This complimentary educational session is part of the ongoing series of webinars presented by TALX.
