MyIowaUI offers convenience for unemployment tax system

Friday, January 4, 2013

Effective immediately, Iowa Workforce Development will add an additional feature to MyIowaUI, Iowa's on-line unemployment insurance tax system.

Businesses and accounting firms will register on-line and immediately receive their account number, eliminating the processing time and paper forms.

"Providing enhanced online services is a critical step in providing greater efficiency for Iowa businesses," stated Iowa Workforce Development director Teresa Wahlert.

Over 32,000 businesses have already taken advantage of this on-line system by electronically filing their quarterly unemployment tax reports, making unemployment tax payments on-line, and monitoring their account.

MyIowaUI is designed to be a portal for businesses, accountants, and third party administrators to manage unemployment insurance account(s) on-line.

To initiate the process of registering for an unemployment insurance tax account, the business owner or agent will sign in at myiowaui.org.

It is recommended that they have the following information readily available: the date they began employing workers in Iowa, the first date wages were paid in Iowa, their Federal Employer Identification Number (FEIN) and ownership information, all wage information to date.

It is our hope that once employers utilize MyIowaUI to register on-line, they will also take the time to explore and use other features offered by MyIowaUI.

We would like to thank all of our businesses, accountants, and third party administrators that have offered their appreciation for the convenience of on-line registration, as well as suggesting their ideas for enhanced features.

MyIowaUI will continue to be a work in progress as long as we continue to receive feedback.

Employers can access myiowaui.org to begin the registration process.
