End of Life of Paper Annual Notice of Employer Contribution Rates

Beginning with fiscal year 2012/2013 employers will no longer receive an annual paper Notice of Employer Contribution Rates.  This change will benefit employers and the State of New Jersey.  The Notice of Employer Contribution Rates will now be accessible through the Tax Web Enabled System (TWES).  This will enable employers to get their contribution rates much sooner and makes this information available 24/7.

The TWES also provides the employer with the account status, payment history, open balance, delinquent reports and other valuable information. 

To establish a TWES account, go to:

State of New Jersey

Instructions are attached to this forum to assist you with this process.  Please follow these instructions carefully.  The employer must establish the administrator account first; creating a user account is optional. 

***Please note that BeyondPay can not create this TWES account for you and that we do not have your PIN.  We do however recommend that you create a user account for BeyondPay.


New Hires

Federal and State law requires employers to report newly hired and rehired employees in New Jersey to the New Jersey New Hire Directory.  This information is used by the New Jersey Department of Labor and Workforce Development to assist in prevention of unemployment insurance benefit overpayments. 

***BeyondPay handles the reporting of New Hires so employers do not need to worry about this requirement as long as they keep an active payroll account with BeyondPay.
