Final 2023 FUTA Credit Reduction States
Five states faced a potential FUTA credit reduction in 2023: California, Connecticut, Illinois, New York, and the Virgin Islands. Connecticut and Illinois repaid their outstanding advances before November 10, 2023; thus, avoiding a FUTA credit reduction.
California and New York had outstanding advances on January 1 for 2021, 2022, and 2023 and did not repay their advances before November 10, 2023. Therefore, employers in these states face a 0.6% credit reduction.
The US Virgin Islands (USVI) had an outstanding advance on January 1 from 2010 through 2023 and did not repay the advances before November 10, 2023. Therefore, employers in the USVI face a 3.9% credit reduction.
