SUBJECT

:

Comparative Data on Federal Unemployment Tax Act (FUTA) Receipts and Amounts Returned to States

 

  1. Purpose. To provide tables for Fiscal Years (FY) 1997-2000 showing estimated FUTA receipts attributable to employment in each state and the amounts provided to each state for program administration and benefit payments. Cumulative totals for FY 1981 through FY 2000 are also included.

  2. References. UIPL No. 24-98 and UIPL No. 24-98, Change 2

  3. Background. There has been considerable interest among State Workforce Agencies in comparing FUTA receipts attributable to employment in each state to amounts provided to each State in past years. This UIPL provides data for FY 2000 and a cumulative table for FY 1981 through FY 2000. Revised tables for FY 1997 - 1999 are also provided, including postage costs by state. Data for earlier years can be found in UIPL No. 24-98 (FY 1981-1993) and UIPL No. 24-98, Change 2 (FY 1994-1996). When comparing FUTA receipts and amounts returned, it is important to note that postage costs and National Activities expenditures (approximately $3 billion for the FY 1981 through FY 2000 period) are not reflected in the state data prior to 1997; this effectively reduces the apparent proportion of FUTA receipts returned to states.

  4. Action Required. Please distribute to appropriate staff.

  5. Inquiries. Direct inquiries to the appropriate Regional Office. Data may be obtained in computerized format by contacting Scott Gibbons of the National Office at (202)693-3008. Data are also available on the Office of Workforce Security web site through the Document Management System: https://oui.doleta.gov/XDMS/indexfrm.xml. The text and tables can be accessed through a link under UI Program Letters in the folder labeled FY 1998.
