Nevada Employers Could Pay Higher Taxes
(Carson City, NV) — Nevada employers could pay higher unemployment taxes next year.
The state Employment Security Council has recommended companies pay a higher tax rate in 2013, which would mean an additional $72 a year per employee.
Nevada still owes nearly $700 million to the federal government for money it borrowed to pay out jobless benefits.
The Silver State’s 12.1% unemployment rate is the highest in the nation.
