What is FUTA?

The Federal Unemployment Tax Act (FUTA), with state unemployment systems, provides for payments of unemployment compensation to workers who have lost their jobs. Most employers pay both a federal and a state un-employment tax. Only the employer pays FUTA tax; it isn't withheld from the employee's wages. For 2021, the FUTA tax rate is 6.0%.
