Your completed 2023 wage report is instrumental in determining your 2025 UI Trust contribution, so please follow the instructions in the Excel file carefully. Here are some details to be aware of.

  • Be sure to enter a wage amount for each eligible employee. The taxable wage base for 2023 was $13,500. The capped taxable wage amount will be calculated automatically when you enter each employee’s gross wage totals. 
  • Include wages for all full-time, part-time, temporary, and seasonal employees who worked for you in calendar year 2023. 
  • Do NOT include wages for any elected officials or non-salaried, volunteer positions such as firefighters, ambulance workers, or EMTs, as these volunteer workers are ineligible for unemployment insurance. 
  • Provide only one entry per employee. If an employee worked multiple positions, please categorize them in the position where they worked the most.
  • Be sure to include department information for each employee listed so that we can provide you with your breakdown. If you leave this field blank, all employees will be categorized as “General” by default.

If you have any questions regarding the above information or completing your report, please feel free to call Kelley or email her at
