Nevada Payroll Tax Registration
Hello Employer, congratulations on hiring someone in Nevada! In order to comply with state regulations, you will need to register for payroll tax with the Nevada Department of Taxation, ensuring that you fulfill your obligations as an employer.
How Nevada Payroll Registration Works
There are 2 payroll tax setup tasks you may need to complete in Nevada to get your new hire on payroll for the first time. You can follow the guide below to help you get registered directly with the Nevada agencies or use Mosey to do it.
Nevada Unemployment Insurance Setup
Any employer that spends more than $225 on employee wages during any calendar quarter must register with the Nevada Department of Employment, Training, and Rehabilitation and pay Unemployment Insurance tax, which is a portion of an employer’s total payroll taxes. Note: New employers pay the Unemployment Insurance tax at a rate of 2.95% of taxable wages until they are eligible for experience rating. An employer's experience rating is a tax ratio consisting of accumulated taxes paid, accumulated benefits charged to their account, and average taxable payroll for the prior three years.
Register for Unemployment Insurance
File the Nevada Business Registration Form online with the Nevada Employment Security Division. In most cases, you will immediately obtain your Nevada Unemployment Insurance Account Number, though occasionally an application may require manual review. If your application requires manual review, you will be notified by mail of the status of your application.
Nevada Modified Business Tax Setup
Every business must register with the Nevada Department of Employment, Training, and Rehabilitation and pay the Modified Business Tax (MBT). The MBT is applied to gross wages, with deductions for expenses related to employee health care benefits. Note: When you register with the Nevada Employment Security Division for Unemployment Compensation for your employees you'll also automatically register with the Department of Taxation for the MBT.
Add Modified Business Tax Information to Your Payroll Provider
You will receive your Modified Business Tax (MBT) account number from the Department of Taxation automatically after registering for Unemployment Insurance Tax. Configure your MBT account number with your payroll provider once you receive your tax information packet by mail.
