Employer Guide to 2021 Tax Withholding Changes

Employer Guide to 2021 Tax Withholding Changes

As an annual service to our members, NJBIA explains the changes in tax withholding rates and taxable wage bases that employers face in the year ahead. Outside of payroll taxes, it is important to note that legislation signed into law in 2020 reinstated the 2.5% corporate business tax surtax originally imposed in the 2018 state tax law changes. The 2.5% surcharge had been scheduled to be lowered to 1.5% for the 2020 tax year.

It is also important to be aware that the high unemployment resulting from the pandemic will probably lead to an unemployment insurance payroll tax increase for employers in July of 2021, in addition to the employee change below. The exact employer rate increase has not been determined yet and will depend on potential state and federal responses.

Unemployment Insurance & New Jersey Workforce Development Taxes
Employee and employer state Unemployment Insurance and Workforce Development/Supplemental Workforce Funds tax rates will apply to the first $36,200 of an employee’s earnings in 2021 (up from $35,300 in 2020).

For 2021, employees are subject to a 0.0425% (.000425) Workforce Development/Supplemental Workforce Funds tax rate – the same as 2020. The employee Unemployment Insurance tax rate remains at 0.3825% (.003825) of taxable payroll.

New Jersey Temporary Disability (TDI) & Family Leave Insurance (FLI) Taxes
The 2021 TDI and FLI Taxable Wage base for employees-only is $138,200 – up from 2020’s $134,900. The TDI Taxable Wage Base for employers-only is $36,200 – a slight increase from 2020’s $35,300.

The 2021 disability tax rate for employees rises to 0.47% of taxable wages, up from 0.26%.

The tax rate for existing employers for the state plan is based on each employer’s claims experience.

Family Leave Insurance tax rate for employees rises to 0.28% of taxable wages, up from 0.16% in 2020.

Explanation of Federal Unemployment Tax Act (FUTA)
FUTA is a tax that employers pay to the federal government to help states pay for unemployment benefits. Due to actions taken in 2013 to stabilize the state Unemployment Insurance Trust Fund and repay federal loans, New Jersey employers will pay a FUTA tax rate of only 0.6% on the first $7,000 of an employee’s wages in 2021.

FICA and Medicare
The Social Security portion of the FICA tax that both employers and employees pay remains unchanged at 12.4% (6.2% each). The maximum amount of earnings subject to the Social Security payroll tax will increase to $142,800, up from the 2020 amount of $137,700.

Most Americans will pay a 2.9% Medicare FICA tax, which is split evenly between employees and employers (1.45% each). However, it should be noted that unlike the Social Security FICA tax, there is no limit on the amount of wages subject to the Medicare portion of the tax.

The Affordable Care Act imposed an additional tax of 0.9% on the employee-paid portion of the Medicare FICA tax for high-wage earners. The threshold amounts are $250,000 for married taxpayers who file jointly, $125,000 for married taxpayers who file separately, and $200,000 for single and all other taxpayers. While the additional Medicare tax for the individual wage earner’s portion on compensation will rise to 2.35% (1.45% plus 0.9%), the employer-paid portion of the Medicare tax on these amounts remains at 1.45%.

Self-employed individuals are responsible for the entire FICA tax rate of 15.3% on the first $142,800 of self-employment income. They are also responsible for the 2.9% Medicare FICA tax on income above $142,800, as well as the additional 0.9% Medicare tax established under the ACA if income meets the aforementioned “high wage earner” thresholds.

NOTE: Employers are advised to check with the IRS regarding information on federal income tax withholdings. Information can be found at http://www.IRS.gov.

Employee Benefits Increase in 2021
Employee maximum weekly benefits for Workers’ Compensation, Unemployment Compensation, and Temporary Disability are adjusted annually to reflect increases in average taxable wages of covered employees. Amounts applicable in 2021 are set forth below:

New Jersey Unemployment Insurance
The 2021 Maximum Unemployment Insurance weekly benefits rate is $731 (up from $713 in 2020).

Temporary Disability & Family Leave Insurance
The 2021 Maximum TDI weekly benefit rate is $903 (up from $881 in the second half of 2020 and $650 in the first half of 2020).

Workers’ Compensation
The 2021 Maximum Workers’ Compensation weekly benefit rate is $969 (up from $945 in 2020).

  1. First, we calculate your average weekly wage. We do this by dividing your base year earnings by the number of base weeks. 

In 2020, a "base week" is any week you earn $200 or more. In 2021, a "base week" is any week you earn $220 or more.

2. Now, we can determine your weekly benefit rate. Claimants are paid 85% of their average weekly wage, up to the maximum weekly benefit rate set for that calendar year.

In 2020, the maximum weekly benefit rate is $881 per week.

In 2021, the maximum weekly benefit rate is $903 per week. 

For example, let’s say Steve's first day of disability is Friday, March 5, 2021. To see how much he would receive weekly on Temporary Disability Insurance, we look at his reported wages for the first four of the last five completed quarters: 


Previous Completed QuartersTimeframe CoveredTotal EarningsNumber of Base Weeks
Quarter 5 

10/1/20 - 12/31/20

$5,50013 base weeks
Quarter 4 

7/1/20 - 9/30/20

$5,00012 base weeks
Quarter 3 

4/1/20 - 6/30/20

$5,00012 base weeks
Quarter 2 

1/1/20 - 3/31/20

$4,00010 base weeks
Quarter 1 

10/1/19 - 12/31/19

$4,20011 base weeks

Quarters 1 through 4 are the regular base year and the timeframe used to calculate his benefits.

Total base year earnings: $18,200 which we divide by 45 (the number of base weeks)

This gives us an average weekly wage of $404.

Steve’s weekly benefit rate is 85 % of his average weekly wage: $343.

NJ Income Tax – UI/DI/FLI Credits

You can take credit on your New Jersey tax return for any excess unemployment insurance (UI)/workforce development partnership fund (WF)/supplemental workforce fund (SWF) contributions, disability insurance (DI) contributions, and/or family leave insurance (FLI) contributions withheld by two or more employers. For 2020, the maximum employee contributions were:

  • UI/WF/SWF — $150.03;
  • DI — $350.74;
  • FLI — $215.84.
How to Claim a Credit
If you had two or more employers and you contributed more than the maximum amount(s), you should complete Form NJ-2450to claim a credit. If you had only oneemployer, you cannot file Form NJ-2450. If any single employer incorrectly withheld more than the maximum amount(s), you must contact that employer for a refund. If you are filing a joint return and both of you had excess contributions withheld, you must complete separate forms for each of you.

Your W-2s must show the employer's New Jersey Taxpayer Identification Number or approved private plan number. In addition, the amounts of your UI/WF/SWF, DI, and FLI contributions must be shown on the W-2s you provide. Your claim will be denied if your W-2s do not include this information.

Note:The contribution amounts are different every year. You must file the NJ-2450 for the same tax year as the tax return you are filing. Prior year forms are available online.

If Your Claim is Rejected
If your credit is denied because allNew Jersey Department of Labor and Workforce Development requirements are not met, you must refile your claim using the Labor Department's Form UC-9A, “Employee’s Claim for Refund of Excess Contributions.”

Additional information on these contributions is available on the Department of Labor and Workforce Developmentwebsite.
