Tennessee is a hybrid state wherein all customers are subject to the Justworks' tax rate, but have individual account numbers associated with Justworks. There is no online registration required- instead, filling out form LB-0910 will act as the registration. Here are the steps to follow:
- Complete form LB-0910, Application for Client Number. A member of our unemployment insurance team will reach out to you with this form, pre-filled with Justworks information. Please reach out to us at firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions.
- Fill out the entire form as it is applicable for your business.
- For #1B, if your company does not have a separate trade name (DBA), leave this blank.
- For #2, if your company does not have a physical office in the state, the Client's Physical Business address should reflect the home/work address of a remote employee.
- For #6, all responses should reflect what is true for the employer while on the Justworks platform, and not before, even if you already have TN employees
In effect, the questions should read:
- 6A. Number of workers your client has employed (will employ) in TN on Justworks
- 6B. Date your client first employed (will employ) a worker in TN on Justworks → If you are new to TN, answer normally. If you already have TN employees upon joining Justworks, enter the day of your effective date with Justworks -- do not enter the earliest hire date of your existing employee(s)
- 6C. Date your client first paid (will pay) a worker in Tennessee on Justworks → Similar to B. If you are new to TN, answer normally. If you already have TN employees upon joining Justworks, enter the day of your effective date with Justworks
- 6D. Multiple states can be listed here, but should only include those that are client-reporting. If you have questions on which states to include, please reference this article.
- 6E. The control number can also be listed as a file number, depending on the state in which you are incorporated. The control number does need to be included for the application to be complete.
- For #7- #10, please be sure to provide answers to each question listed.
