Employers and Last Mile Companies: Stop Throwing Money Away! (Unemployment Tax Version)


How the State Determines What You Pay

Each state imposes an Unemployment Tax Rate to each employer. That rate determines how much money your company pays for each employee to keep the state fund solvent.

Here’s an example:

Taxable Wage Base is $20,000.00
Number of Employees is 50
Tax Rate is 7%

Result: You pay $1400.00 per employee for a total of $70,000.00

How Consultech Can Bring That Number Down

Consultech acts as your first line of defense in handling unemployment claims. We respond to claims, protest determinations, and attend hearings to stop former employees, who should not be entitled to benefits, from collecting.

How does this affect your bottom line?

If we can stop those who should not be collecting, it reduces your rate.

Back to Tax Rates. We can keep your rate lower by doing just what we stated above. If we keep your rate at 3%, your total payment in the example above is now $30,000.00

Companies that use ICs

Keeping your Rate to a minimum reduces your exposure at an audit. This can save you up to 50%. Imagine the Calculation above and multiply that by 100.

500 contractors at a 7% rate is $700,000 (before penalties)

500 Contractors at 3.0% is $300,000 (which also reduces your penalties and interest.)

The best part? Our fees are a fraction of those savings. With our proprietary software and expertise, we keep our costs to a minimum and we pass that along to you!
