A total of 17 states are slated to be FUTA credit reduction states for 2013 unless they pay off their outstanding federal unemployment insurance loans by November 10. This situation means that employers in those jurisdictions will not be able to claim the maximum amount of credit for state unemployment taxes when they file their federal unemployment tax returns for 2013 (due in 2014).  To read on, CLICK HERE.
