Tax Rate for New Employers:
Employers who have only paid wages for a short time and do not qualify for an experience rating are considered "New Employers". We assign new employers a tax rate that is equal to the average for their industry. This ensures that a new employer has a tax rate that aligns with other businesses in their industry.
