South Carolina 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 South Carolina Unemployment Account number and Unemployment Tax Rate.
We don't have a South Carolina Unemployment Account, what do we do?
If you don't yet have an account yet, you can create one here. The power of attorney form must be signed by the same person who signed the State Registration. Once you have completed the Power of Attorney form, please send it back to Justworks so that we can follow up with the state on your behalf.
We joined Justworks in the middle of a quarter, what do we do?
If you joined in the middle of a quarter, Justworks will file for SC Unemployment for the whole quarter, as there cannot be duplicate filing under one Unemployment Account Please send Justworks your QTD payroll reports and request all funds back from your current Provider for South Carolina 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!
Closing your withholding account
To close out your withholding account, fill out a C-278 form and send directly to the state. This can also be done online through your Mydorway portal.
If you’re having trouble completing the online account setup process, please contact the state’s customer service line for assistance.
