New Procedures for Employer Contribution Reports - Unemployment Insurance

Effective for the 1st quarter of 2016, the Maryland Department of Labor will no longer mail paper Quarterly Contribution Reports to employers. The electronic submission of this form is mandatory for employers effective the 1st quarter of 2016. An employer will be required to file electronically or use a third party payroll service to submit the report.

Employers with 5,000 employees or less are encouraged to use the Web Tax Application via the internet at The electronic filing method is an easier and safer way to submit the report.

The Contributions Division developed a FTP Application for payroll providers and large employers with more than 5,000 employees to file their quarterly Contribution Reports. This process will eliminate the mailing of magnetic media (CD’s and cartridges) that includes detail wage information.

For questions, employers should contact the Employer Assistance Unit at 410-767-2412 or by e-mail at
