What is Annual Federal FUTA Tax Form 940?

Form 940 is the Employer’s Annual Federal Unemployment (FUTA) Tax Return. The FUTA tax provides funds for paying unemployment compensation to workers who have lost their jobs. Only employers pay FUTA tax and it is not deducted from their employees’ wages.

Employers must pay a tax rate of 6% on the first $7000 that each employee makes. If state unemployment taxes (SUTA) can be paid on-time, the FUTA tax can be reduced to 0.6 percent.
