Full report in PDF format

  • It is not currently feasible to privatize tax collection services for the Unemployment Compensation Program, but this could change in the future.  Although federal law currently requires that public employees must perform this function, there are proposals that could eliminate this requirement.
  • The Department of Revenue has streamlined the unemployment tax collection process since it assumed responsibility for this function from the Department of Labor and Employment Security.  It has been able to reduce the number of staff allocated to this function by 30%.
