How do I report SUTA Dumping against a company or my employer?
SUTA (State Unemployment Tax Act) Dumping is a tax evasion practice involving the manipulation of an employer’s unemployment insurance (UI) tax rate to achieve a lower rate, and pay less UI taxes. Typically, SUTA Dumping occurs when a business transfers payroll out of an existing company or organization to a new or different organization solely or primarily to reduce UI taxes. Review Fact Sheet 114 - SUTA Dumping for more information.
If you have or think you have received tax advice that may raise a SUTA concern, or if you suspect another employer is engaging in SUTA Dumping, contact the Office of Employer Ombudsman (OEO) at 1-855-484-2636.
