Hibou Odoo Suite Enterprise: State of Florida: Unemployment Insurance Reporting & Payments

Purpose

The purpose of this documentation is to outline the processes and requirements associated with Unemployment Insurance Reporting & Payments to the proper authorities in the state of Florida.

Unemployment Insurance Reporting & Payments

Employers are required to file their current year RT-6 reports and pay tax electronically on the MyFlorida website if they employed 10 or more employees in any quarter during the most recent state fiscal year (July through June).

The electronic file and payment option is available to all taxpayers, not just those who are required to electronically file and pay.

Each quarter, a preprinted Employer’s Quarterly Report (RT-6) is mailed to each liable employer who does not file and pay electronically.

Employer's Quarterly Report (RT-6) must be submitted by the end of the month following the calendar quarter for which the report is due:
