Using Unemployment Tax Registration

Employers must register with the Texas Workforce Commission (TWC) within 10 days of becoming subject to the Texas Unemployment Compensation Act. TWC provides this quick, free, online service to make registering as easy as possible.

You will answer a series of questions about the ownership of the business and the number of locations operated. Once the registration is complete, liable employers will receive a TWC Tax Account Number and may be able to file wage reports and submit unemployment tax payments online.

The registration process takes approximately 20 minutes. The system will automatically save partial registration information once the initial details have been entered. Incomplete registrations will be accessible through this Internet site for one year; you can come back later to continue the registration process.
