Interest Assessment Surcharge (IAS) July 2022


New York based employers must pay Interest Assessment Surcharge (IAS)

New York State based employers who make unemployment insurance contributions will be liable to pay the Interest Assessment Surcharge (IAS). These IAS payments are required to replenish federal unemployment insurance benefits which were depleted during the COVID-19 Pandemic.

PayServ cannot collect or process this payment for you. Employers need to pay this directly through New York’s Department of Labor Website.

Please note, the total amount due, as shown on the bottom right of your notice, may include any unpaid amounts for previous unpaid annual assessments and therefore should be paid in full.

The payment is due 30 days of the date of the notice. New York State may charge interest and penalties if not paid timely. Employers can pay online or with a check.
Learn more from the New York Department of Labor Interest Assessment Surcharge page.
