Surprisingly, Congress allowed the 0.2% federal unemployment surtax to expire on July 1, 2011, without a whimper. The surtax, which was tacked on to the 6.0% FUTA rate (before being offset by a 5.4% credit), has been around “temporarily” for 35 years.

Note: Employers must separately track wages paid before July 1 and after June 30.
