Payment Of Employers’ Tax For 1939 Explained RALEIGH, April 27.—Employers subject to the State Unemployment Compensation law, who have not paid thoir 1939 contributions, may still save their federal taxes if they make the payments by June 30. Chairman Charles G. Powell, of the state commission, points out. These payments were due by Jan uary 1 and if paid to the state com mission bv that time, the paying employers received 90 per cent cred it, leaving 10 per cent for the fed eral government. If contributions of 2.7 per cent of payrolls were not paid to the state by January 31, but are paid by June 30, then credit for SI per cent is allowed, and the federal penalty is nine per cent. If paid later the federal government collects the full 3 per cent of the payroll, in addition to the. states 2 7 per cent, almost doubling the original tax. Powell said.
