#TuesdayTip | SUITS

by Kristin Coulter | Jul 10, 2018

Did you know that in the first quarter of 2018, DEW saw a 34 percent increase in the number of people filing wage reports and tax payments electronically rather than by mail? Why, you may ask?

The State Unemployment Insurance Tax System (SUITS)—DEW’s upgraded tax portal.

It replaces the agency’s legacy tax system to improve the customer experience and allows employers to optimize their account portfolio.

If you have not yet created a user ID within the Employer Self-Service Portal, we encourage you to do that in advance of the quarterly filing deadline of July 31, 2018.  This will allow you to easily file your quarterly report and payment via the portal. 

Within SUITS, employers and TPA’s have the ability to customize their management tools that provide:

  • More account transparency and control.
  • Real-time access to account information.
  • Accessibility for completing tasks much like you would with online banking.
  • The opportunity to correspond with DEW representatives within the system.
  • Multiple wage filing options.
  • The use of historic data to eliminate rekeying information.
  • The convenience of system calculations.

To help you familiarize yourself with the new system there are video tutorials, FAQs, desk aids, hints and tips, and more on our website at
