North Dakota 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 North Dakota Unemployment Account Number and your current Unemployment Tax Rate.
We don't have an Unemployment Account, what do we do?
If you don't yet have an account yet, you will need to register with Job Service North Dakota by completing and submitting the Report to Determine Liability (Form SFN41216) to obtain an Employer Account Number.
Closing your withholding account
To close your withholding account, e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org and request to “Close My Withholding Account.” Please include your Company Name, EIN, and effective date of closure (the date prior to the Justworks start date).
We joined Justworks in the middle of a quarter, what do we do?
If you joined Justworks in the middle of a quarter, Justworks will file for NE 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 Nebraska 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.
