Employment Security says unemployment insurance tax rates will rise in 2010 for many employers.
Last week, the Employment Security Department began mailing 2010 tax-rate notices to more than 150,000 Washington businesses. The average tax rate in 2010 will be 2.38 percent, up from 1.55 percent in 2009. The 2010 tax rates will range from 0.95 percent to 6 percent.
WashACE reported late last year on all the labor costs in Washington State.
