Unemployment Insurance Tax - Employer Registration Online

The Unemployment Insurance Employer Registration website allows employers to register, online, their new South Dakota business for unemployment insurance. Employers may then file quarterly wage reports online.

Please note: When you click on the link below you will be taken to a General Login screen prior to gaining access to the Employer Registration site. This is for your security.

Important! You'll need the following information before beginning the Employer Internet Registration process:

  • Federal Employer Identification Number, if obtained from IRS.
  • Amount of wages paid to standard, agricultural, or domestic employees or corporate officers during the current and preceding year.
  • Number of weeks employees worked for you during the current and preceding year.
  • Social Security numbers, name, title and address of owner, partners, corporate officers or members of your business.
  • State and date of incorporation (for corporations only).
  • Name and address of business you acquired, if applicable.

Upon completion of the Employer Registration process, you will receive:

  • A State Unemployment Tax Act (SUTA) account number.
  • An unemployment insurance tax rate.
  • A Personal Identification Number (PIN) for filing quarterly wage reports online.
