Magnetic Media Reporting is No Longer Used - Unemployment Insurance Contributions


Magnetic media filing is a method formerly used to submit files containing quarterly employee wage information bymailing the wage files on various types of media. As a result of concerns regarding the potential vulnerability of sensitive data such as Social Security numbers, magnetic method of filing was discontinued.

Employers that formerly submitted their individual wages by file can still do so, using the same file formats used previously. If the employer has fewer than 5,000 employees, the employer can file online via the WebTax application. If the employer has more than 5,000 employees, the employer can register to submit their wage files to our secure FTP site. To register for this process, e-mail the Unemployment Contributions Unit at DLUIFTPAdmin-DLLR@maryland.gov.
