Every American state has a form of unemployment insurance. To fund the insurance, employers pay a tax to the state, providing benefits to unemployed or underemployed workers. Perhaps surprisingly, Iowa is one of the best states in the country for unemployment insurance. An estimated 44.9% of weekly wages are covered by benefits, and the state’s unemployment rate is the sixth-lowest in the country and is continuing to decrease. Though the Hawkeye State is managing unemployment quite well, each employer must still utilize My Iowa UI and report Iowa unemployment insurance.
My Iowa UI is the system through which employers and agents can access online services related to Iowa unemployment insurance. Users can register for employer accounts and submit quarterly unemployment insurance contribution reports, as well as maintain important account information—contact information, address updates, reporting unit information, users, and agent roles. Though My Iowa UI has worked to streamline the unemployment insurance reporting process, it does little to address the difficulty in calculating the tax itself. That’s where we can help.
Advanced Micro Solutions designs and creates a range of accounting software products targeted to your specific needs. We offer multi-use accounting software to quickly and precisely calculate the amount of Iowa UI tax you must pay per quarter. Moreover, our products include everything from a comprehensive payroll software to an Affordable Care Act Filer. If you need support for accounting, tax and wage reporting, software for filing 1099s or payroll, AMS has the answer.
