Credit or debit cards can be used to pay your Unemployment Insurance (UI) taxes. Visa, Mastercard, and Discover cards are accepted. The current service fee is 1% for making payments with a credit or debit card.
To make a payment:
To make card payments you must have access to your account online. If you file your Unemployment Insurance reports online through our website, you already have access to your UI account and can submit card payments immediately.
If you do not have online access to your UI account and want to make card payments, you will need an access code mailed to you. Access codes can be obtained by going to our website at https://dwd.wisconsin.gov/uitax and selecting the link Request Online Access to Your Account. Users will be required to create a username and password. Once the username and password are created, the user will enter either their 10-digit UI Account Number or their Federal Employer Identification Number (FEIN). For security purposes, the access code is mailed to the employer's main business mailing address.
When making a card payment online, you will be session transferred to an external site powered by US Bank. All card processing occurs through the US Bank site and the DWD does not collect, store, or transmit any card data.
To make a payment, you will need to have your card number, expiration date, and 3-digit CVC security code available. After entering your card data, you will have the option of saving your card for future use. When using a saved card in the future, you will need to provide the 3-digit CVC security code each time. Note: Payment information is specific to your login ID and corresponding account. Your saved card will not be available to other login IDs with access to your UI account, nor available to other UI accounts if you have access to multiple accounts.
You can access the card payment site after you login in to your UI account. From the Employer Home page, select Payment Options or Billing Detail. Alternatively, after you complete the filing of your UI tax report online using the File Tax and Wage Reports System the Filing Confirmation page will have a link to Payment Options.
Please contact UI at (608) 266-5793 or email firstname.lastname@example.org if you have further questions.
