Nebraska:  Due to a recent amendment to the state unemployment administrative code filed by the Department of Labor on April 5, 2019, employers in Nebraska will have the option to pay taxes annually rather than on a quarterly basis.  Whereas in the past, employers in this state had to file and pay quarterly, effective on Wednesday, April 10, 2019, experience-rated employers that have a positive account balance on October 31 and have no delinquent unemployment tax payments or reports may opt to pay taxes annually starting with 2020.  Taxes due on the annual payment option must be paid no later than January 31 of the following year.

There are additional stipulations for employers who elect this option.  They must agree to report hours worked on each quarterly wage report.  The commissioner of the labor department must approve the election and may revoke it if an employer does not follow the requirement of reporting hours worked on a quarterly basis.  If an employer chooses this option, it must notify the commissioner by February 15 of the year in which the annual payment should be made.
