Arkansas is what's referred to as a client-reporting state for unemployment insurance. Justworks needs your company’s information to report unemployment taxes under your unemployment account.
In order to report, please send Justworks your Unemployment Account Number and your Unemployment Tax Rate. If you not do not have an Unemployment Account, please begin the registration process via the Arkansas Dept of Workforce Services. Clients should answer no to "are you an employee leasing employer?"
Closing your withholding account
To close your withholding account, fill out the AR-20 form in full as it relates to your business (this is attached to the paperclip). Indicate "Withholding Wage" under "Tax Account Type" and check "Closed" in the "Reason for Closing Tax Account" box. Sign the form and mail to the address listed at the bottom.
We joined Justworks in the middle of a quarter, what do we do?
If you transitioned to Justworks in the middle of a quarter, Justworks will file for AR Unemployment for the whole quarter, as there cannot be duplicate filing under one Unemployment Account. You'll need to send Justworks your QTD payroll reports. Please request all funds back from your current Provider for Arkansas State Unemployment. Since we will file for the entire quarter, we will bill you for the amount that has already been withheld, and we don’t want you to pay twice!
If you’re having trouble completing the online account setup process, please contact the state’s customer service line for assistance.
