Am I required to ENROLL for a TWC Number / Payroll Taxes / Unemployment Insurance Number as an Employer?
Texas Workforce Commission says it best:
Most employers are required to pay Unemployment Insurance (UI) tax under certain circumstances. The Texas Workforce Commission uses three employment categories: regular, domestic and agricultural. Employer tax liability differs for each type of employment. Liable employers must register with TWC to create a tax account and in each calendar quarter, report wages paid to employees and pay taxes due. For state unemployment tax purposes, only the first $9,000 paid to an employee by an employer during a calendar year constitutes “taxable wages.” Quarterly wage reports and taxes must be filed and paid by the last day of the month following the end of the calendar quarter.
