Washington Employee Information

Exemption from Washington State Unemployment Insurance Tax and Employment Administration Fund Tax

As of December 2013, officers who provide services in Washington are automatically exempt from unemployment insurance unless the employer specifically requests to cover them. This exception (opting into unemployment insurance) can only be made for corporations. It does not apply to sole proprietors, partners of partnerships, or managers of limited liability companies (LLCs), etc.

If a corporate officer wants to opt in to Washington State Unemployment Insurance, they must fill out the Formulario de elección voluntaria, and the WA Employment Security Department must approve the request. If one corporate officer opts in, then ALL other corporate officers must be opted in as well. This form must be filed with the WA Employment Security Department every two years.

For more information, read estas preguntas frecuentes or contact the WA Employment Security Department at 360-902-9360.

Exemption from Washington State Workers’ Compensation Insurance

Sole Proprietors, Partners, For-Profit Corporate Officers, and Members/Managers of Limited Liability Companies (LLCs) are typically exempt from workers compensation insurance. To voluntarily opt in, they must file the Solicitud de cobertura opcional with the WA Department of Labor & Industries.
