Because the account of Missouri in the Unemployment Trust Fund had a balance of advances on January 1 of 2004, 2005, and 2006, and still had a balance of advances on November 10, 2006, Missouri employers were potentially liable for a reduction in their FUTA offset credit for 2006. Section 3302(g) of FUTA provides that a state may avoid credit reduction for a year by meeting certain criteria. Missouri applied for avoidance of the 2006 credit reduction under this section. Pursuant to delegation of authority to me under Secretary’s Order 4–75, I have determined that Missouri meets all of the criteria of section 3302(g) and thus qualifies for credit reduction avoidance. Therefore, Missouri employers will have no reduction in FUTA offset credit for calendar year 2006. Dated: November 24, 2006. Emily Stover DeRocco, Assistant Secretary for Employment and Training.
