FUTA deposit threshold increases in 2005
The IRS has good news for more than four million small businesses. Under regulations recently issued by the IRS, employers will be required to make quarterly deposits for federal unemployment taxes (FUTA) only if the accumulated tax exceeds $500. The deposit threshold prior to 2005 was $100.
Since the maximum tax per employee is $56 per year, the higher threshold eliminates the quarterly deposit requirement for employers with eight or fewer employees.
