Texas Payroll Tax FAQs

What is Texas Unemployment Insurance Tax?

Unemployment Insurance Tax (UI) is a federal program that provides temporary payments to workers that are unemployed, and this employment status is not based on their own actions.

Employers can register online for a new unemployment tax account at Unemployment Tax Registration. When you register online, you will receive a TWC tax account number and confirmation of your registration. Employers who do not want to register online can mail in completed Employer’s Registration Forms – Status Report Form C1 & C-1FR.

Does Texas Have State Payroll Taxes?

  • Income Tax: Texas doesn’t have a state income tax, so as an employer, you are not required to register for state payroll taxes. You are still required to withhold federal income taxes and federal payroll taxes such as Social Security and Medicare.
  • New Employees: The state of Texas does require all employers to report all new or rehired employees to the Employer New Hire Reporting Operations Center (ENHR) in the Texas Office of the Attorney General within 20 days of the effective hire date, which is the first date any services are performed for which you will pay the employee wages or other compensation.
  • Unemployment Insurance: Texas employers are also required to register online for an unemployment tax account with the Texas Workforce Commission. Once the business is registered, employers receive a TWCtax account number.

Am I Required to Register for Employer Taxes in Texas?

If you have employees working in Texas, you must register them with the Texas State Attorney General and the Texas Workforce Commission (TWC) for Unemployment Taxes. The TWC uses three employment categories: regular, domestic, and agricultural, and the employer tax liability differs for each type of employment.

What is a TWC tax account number?

Once CorpNet registers your business with the TWC, you will be issued a TWC tax account number to use on all your business compliance requirements.

What Kind of Information Do I Need for Payroll Tax Registration?

  • Name and Social Security number of all responsible parties
  • Doing Business As (DBA), if applicable
  • Physical business address and mailing address
  • Business phone number
  • Valid email address (contact person and business)
  • Nine-digit federal Employer Identification Number (EIN)
  • Industry description

What if I Don’t Have an EIN?

An EIN is a Federal Tax Identification Number provided by the IRS. If you do not have an EIN already, CorpNet can obtain one for you via their FTIN service.

What if I Don’t Have a Payroll Processor?

CorpNet works with the leading payroll processors and we can connect you with our trusted partners who will pay your employees, accrue the necessary taxes, and complete the necessary payments and documentation with state and federal authorities.
