Experian Employer Services received word from the Massachusetts Department of Unemployment Assistance that contributions paid for the COVID-19 Recovery Assessment are not FUTA-certifiable. This means the COVID-19 Recovery
Assessment contributions paid will not be included in employers’ Federal Form 940 certification.

In May 2021, legislation was enacted in Massachusetts which created a new account called the COVID-19 Employer Relief Account. All COVID-related charges were moved from the solvency fund and charged to this account instead which lowered the 2021 solvency rate. Additional legislation created a new COVID-specific employer charge, the COVID-19 Recovery Assessment which would help recover the charges to the COVID-19 Employer Relief Account. The most recent communication from MDUA relates contributions paid to the special assessment as not being FUTA-certifiable.

This does not impact the employer’s maximum FUTA credit of 5.4%. Generally, employers are eligible for this credit when filing their Federal Form 940 if they have paid their state unemployment taxes in full and timely and if the state is not a credit reduction state. If you have questions regarding this communication or about your unemployment taxes in general, please contact your assigned CCC Tax Analyst.
