CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) — Wyoming employers will see their state unemployment insurance tax rates go down next year.

The Wyoming Department of Workforce Services says the formula used each year to determine employer contribution rates determined that employers will be subject to lower rates.

This month, about 22,000 Wyoming employers will receive notices outlining their respective 2014 unemployment insurance tax rates from the state.

Appeal requests must be received by the Workforce Services Department within 30 days from the tax rate notice being mailed.

Wyoming is one of 20 states with an Unemployment Insurance Trust Fund that did not go broke during the recent economic downturn.
