Term Definition
SUTA stands for State Unemployment Tax Authority. This is a state tax paid by the employer to fund unemployment benefits.

Extended Definition
An employer’s SUTA rate is based on their experience and industry. A new rate will be periodically (usually annually) assigned as the employer gains more experience. Taxable income limits are set by each state. Employers need to report their SUTA contributions quarterly.
