Accepted Solution

A:

Given that the
current futa tax rate is 0.6%, and the suta tax rate is 5.4% and both
unemployment taxes are applied to the first $7,000 of an employee's pay.

Therefore, the amount of total unemployment taxes the employee must pay is given by:

0.006(7,000) + 0.054(7,000) = 42 + 378 = $420.

Therefore, the amount of total unemployment taxes the employee must pay is given by:

0.006(7,000) + 0.054(7,000) = 42 + 378 = $420.
