Alaska Unemployment Tax Fraud: What Employers Need to Know
The Alaska Department of Labor and Workforce Development (DLWD) issued an alert to warn employers of a new scam where a third party demands payment of the Employment Security tax. The DLWD does not use a third party to collect missing quarterly reports or payments; employers must remit payments directly to the agency either in person, by mail, or online using TaxWeb.
