Remember to Properly Report Wages for Unemployment Insurance Taxes

Summer is here and so is summer travel season. It’s also a good time for employers to verify that they are properly reporting wages for unemployment insurance taxes. Whether employees are working from another state while on vacation or working on a project outside of Oregon, employees may be performing services in multiple states.  When that happens, where should the wages be reported?  An employer cannot simply divide the reporting between the relevant states.  Rather, the reporting state is determined based on the application of four tests.  A description of each test and how to apply them can be found on the State of Oregon Employment Department website at http://www.oregon.gov/EMPLOY/Documents/uipub209.pdf
