Answer #1

Note:

*FUTA tax rate = 6%.*

*Credit against FUTA tax is allowable upto 5.4%.*

*In case of delay, credit equal to 90% of SUTA dues is
allowable.*

**Answer a.**

Credit for SUTA contributions = 90% credit for state taxes paid late + Additional tax credit if rate were 5.4%

Credit for SUTA contributions = ($104,900 * 3.1% * 90%) + $104,900 * (5.4% - 3.1%) = $2926.71 + $2,412.7 = $5339.41

**Answer b.**

Gross FUTA tax = $104,900 * 0.06 = $6294

Net FUTA tax payable = Gross FUTA tax - Credit for SUTA contributions = $6294 - $5339.41 = $954.59 = $955

**Answer c.**

In case the company had paid its states taxes on time, then it would have received full credit instead of 90%. Thus, it has lost 10% of its credit for state taxes.

Loss to the company because of late payments = $104,900 * 3.1% * 10% = $325.19 = $325
