Unemployment Insurance Tax

Welcome to the Missouri Unemployment Tax Center. The Division of Employment Security (DES) is the state agency responsible for the administration of the unemployment insurance program. The DES has responsibility to both workers and employers.

This site offers services you’ll need to file your required reports, pay your unemployment contributions (taxes) online, file an appeal, and manage your account with the DES. You also can learn about your rights and responsibilities as an employer, as well as programs that the DES offers.
