NMDWS Launches New UI Tax System for Employers
New Self-Service and Account Maintenance Functions
(Albuquerque) – The New Mexico Department of Workforce Solutions launched Phase I of the Unemployment Insurance Tax System Modernization Project (UITSM) today. The UITSM Project has been implemented to provide employers and agents with a user-friendly, secure web portal for improved account accessibility.
Phase I includes automated online self-service registration for new employers and account maintenance functionalities for existing employers and their agents. Phase II will launch in the spring of 2012 with employer access to a full suite of online unemployment insurance tax services, including wage reporting and electronic payments.
"The department has looked forward to the launch of the new tax system and the convenience it will provide for the business community,” said Celina Bussey, Cabinet Secretary Designee, New Mexico Department of Workforce Solutions. “Employers will be able to update their contact information and view account information in real time online."
Existing employers in the unemployment insurance tax system should expect to receive an activation letter in the mail with information on a personal identification number (PIN) and login instructions. Employers can access the new system at www.dws.state.nm.us. The Unemployment Insurance Tax Bureau can be contacted with questions through email firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone at (505) 841-8576.
