The Newark Star Ledger recently turned to Pamela Avraham of Urbach and Avraham, CPAs for her take on the effects of the 2012 FUTA increase for NJ employers . This FUTA increase is now payable in Jan. 2013 and came as a surprise to many employers. Pamela was quoted in the January 20, 2013 edition, describing the challenge that many staffing agencies face due to the increase. Urbach & Avraham is especially attuned to concerns regarding the FUTA increase, as we service many staffing agencies and small businesses. These firms are going to be impacted more significantly, as they tend to have a larger number of low wage employees.
