How is the tax calculated:
The employer payroll tax rate is .0021, unless the employer had two or less employees during the year, in which the tax rate is .0015 on total subject wages up to $100,000.
You will use the tax rate of .0021 on subject wages for the first three quarters and reconcile on the 4th quarter return (or final return) if you qualify for the reduced tax rate using the worksheet on page 3 of Form EUG-PY-1, Employer Payroll Tax Quarterly Return. The difference will be used to reduce the tax due for the 4th quarter; or if there is an overpayment, the overpayment will be applied as a credit (or prepayment) for the next quarter. You can also request a refund by checking a box on the form.
