Form NJ-927

Q. How does the application populate the rates for Lines 6-8 of Form NJ-927?

New Jersey employers and employees have separate rates for:

  • U.I. - Unemployment Insurance
  • D.I. - Disability Insurance
  • W.F./S.W.F. - Workforce Development/Supplemental Workforce Funds
  • F.L.I. - Family Leave Insurance

Employee rates: The application automatically adds the employee rates to lines 6-8 on the form.

Employer rates: You enter these in the Unemployment Rate dialog, which is accessed by clicking the Ellipsis button next to the UI base rate field in the Payroll Taxes tab of the Setup > Clients screen. Important! Enter these rates as percentages, not decimals. For example, 3.0 not 0.03.
