Income tax withholding

Register with the Nebraska Department of Revenue online or by downloading this form here. Once you have completed this form, you can either fax it to the DOR to 1 (402) 471-5927 or mail the application to:

PO Box 98903

Unemployment tax

New employers in the state of Nebraska can register with the Nebraska Department of Labor (DOL) online to obtain an Insurance Tax Account Number and rate. You should receive this number in 7 days after registering online. Click here to view state-by-state new employer rates and wage bases.

If you're unsure of your account number or rate, you should call the agency at (402) 471-9000.

Unemployment payment frequency

While the Nebraska DOL allows certain employers to pay unemployment insurance taxes annually, returns must still be filed quarterly, along with additional information regarding hours worked for each employee.

At any time, the option to pay annually could be revoked by the DOL and penalties and interest could apply. As a result,  Gusto does not support the option to pay annually as there is no risk to you if we continue to pay taxes quarterly.

Important: If you've already elected to pay annually to Nebraska, please notify the DOL that you will now be making quarterly payments. You can email them at: [email protected]
