Ohio 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, Justworks needs your Ohio Unemployment Account number and Unemployment Tax Rate.
We don't have an Ohio Unemployment Account, what do we do?
If you don't yet have an Ohio Unemployment Account, please create one HERE and follow the steps below:
Click "Register Now" on the left hand side
Click "Employer Registration"
Register your business
Notify Justworks of the Account Number and your current Unemployment Tax Rate for Ohio
Complete the OH Representative Authorization (JFS-20106) form to grant Justworks Third Party Administrator access for Unemployment, and send back to Justworks
If you’re having trouble completing the online account setup process, please contact the state’s customer service line for assistance.
How do we close our withholding account?
To close your withholding account, mark the normal quarterly return, IT 941, as your final return by selecting “Yes” for "Cancel Withholding Account" (electronic filing through Ohio Business Gateway).
