Washington Employment Administration Fund Rate
If you are a Washington state employer, you will need to enter the Washington Employment Administration Fund Rate with your tax rate for the Washington Employment Administration Fund (EAF) in order to run your payroll. This rate is separate from your state Unemployment Insurance tax rate. This tax rate can be found on your State of Washington Tax Rate Notice.
