Since the SUTA rates changes are made at the end of each year, the available 2019 rates were used for FUTA and SUTA. Note: For this textbook edition the rate 0.6% was used for the net FUTA tax rate for employers. Example 5-8 The Iqbal Company of Georgia had a FUTA taxable payroll of \$215,600 and a SUTA taxable payroll of \$255,700 with a 5.6 percent SUTA tax rate. The company would pay unemployment taxes of: FUTA \$215,600 × 0.006 = \$1,293.60 SUTA \$255,700 × 0.056 = 14,319.20 Total taxes \$15,612.80 Kresloff Company has only two employees and is located in a state that has set an unemployment tax for the company of 4.8 percent on the first \$12,000 of each employee’s earnings. Both employees are paid the same amount each week (\$900) and have earned \$11,500 up to this week’s pay. The unemployment taxes that the company must pay for this week’s pay would be \$48. FUTA tax (both over \$7,000) = \$0.00 SUTA tax (\$1,000 × 0.048) = \$48.00 (\$500 of each employee’s pay is under the state taxable limit of \$12,000) Marlene Grady and Pauline Monroe are partners engaged in operating The G&M Doll Shop, which has employed the following persons since the beginning of the year: V.
