Two important updates employers must note:

Quarterly Reports Must be Filed Online

  • Beginning with the first quarter 2018 reports, which are due April 30, 2018, all quarterly state unemployment tax reports must be filed online. The reports can be filed either through the Employer Resource Information Center (ERIC) at eric.ohio.gov or the Ohio Business Gateway at business.ohio.gov.

Taxable Wage Base to Increase Temporarily in 2018 and 2019

  • The taxable wage base for the 2018 and 2019 calendar years has increased  from $9,000 to $9,500. This means effective first quarter 2018 employers will pay state unemployment taxes on the first $9,500 in actual (not prorated) wages paid to each of their covered employees.
