Unemployment Tax Rate Factors for 2021

Due to ongoing challenges associated with the COVID-19 pandemic, the Minnesota Legislature recently passed a special law to “carry over” your 2020 Unemployment (UI) tax rate.

Your 2021 UI “experience rate” or “new employer rate” will be calculated the same as it was in 2020. The Legislature made this change to ensure that pandemic-related unemployment in 2020 did not affect 2021 tax rates. 8.90% remains the maximum UI experience rate allowed under Minnesota law.
