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. Upon completion, employers receive a State Unemployment Tax Act (SUTA) account number, an unemployment insurance tax rate and, if they choose to do so, a personal identification number (PIN) to file quarterly wage reports online.
Please be aware that 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:
If you have acquired an existing business and are not acquiring the South Dakota unemployment insurance account, you may register online; however, if you are acquiring the South Dakota unemployment insurance account, you must complete the paper version of Form 1 (in Adobe .pdf format).
