Time to file your quarterly report

Follow us:     

This is a reminder to file your quarterly report and pay your premiums if you haven’t already. Reports and premiums for the first quarter (Jan.1, 2022 – Mar 31, 2022) are due no later than May 1, 2022.

All employers must file a report — even if you don’t have any hours to report or premiums due. In this case, you may write “0” for worker hours/units and payroll.

If you don’t file your report by the deadline, a late filing penalty, and possible interest charges, will be assessed.

If you are unable to pay your quarterly premiums, still file your report before the May 2 deadline.

L&I has an Employer Assistance Program to assist you with a payment plan. You must make a new request each quarter.

L&I services for filing your quarterly report are available online through QuickFile and the Claim & Account Center. Go to File Quarterly Reports and file your quarterly report now.

Twelve L&I offices are now open for in-person services. Check our office hours and locations to see if an office is open near you, and call to schedule an appointment.  All L&I offices are available by phone on weekdays from 8 a.m. – 5 p.m., except on state holidays, and many of our services are available online 24-7.
