Florida Unemployment Interest Assessment for Employers


Florida borrowed funds from the federal government to pay unemployment compensation benefits. Since the loans will not be repaid by January 1, 2012, the state will have to pay interest on the funds. The law requires contributing employers to pay a proportionate share of the interest through a special annual assessment.

The Florida Department of Revenue has mailed an assessment notice (Form UCT-27Fi) to Florida employers informing them of their proportionate share. Payment is due by June 30, 2011. Click here for more information about Florida Unemployment Compensation Law.
