2013 State of Florida Unemployment (Re-employment) Tax Rates

How Much Do You Pay?

The initial tax rate for new employers is .0270 (2.7%). Beginning January 1, 2012 and continuing through 2013, the first $8,000 in wages paid to each employee during a calendar year is taxable. Any amount over $8,000 for the year is excess wages and is not subject to tax. Excess wages can never be greater than gross wages. (Taxable wages prior to January 1, 2012 remain at $7,000.)
