New employers will receive an unemployment tax rate after you have registered with the Alaska Department of Labor and Workforce Development. You will receive confirmation of the number in 5-7 days through an email, followed by a letter in the mail.

The AK Total Contribution Rate appears on the Contribution Rate Notice and includes the combined employer and employee components. New employers should complete the employer registration process to get their new employer rate, which ranges based on your industry. The new employer rate ranges by industry, usually from 1.5%-1.78% and it has a wage base of $39,900 in 2019. If you're unsure of your rate, please call the agency at (907) 465-2757 to obtain it.
