Today, we at 501(c) Agencies Trust announce the addition of Girl Scouts of West Central Florida as a new program participant.
501(c) Agencies Trust is a group of 1,500 nonprofits from across the country that have elected to not participate in the state unemployment tax system. Instead, we have chosen to become employers who reimburse the state for our unemployment costs. 501(c) Agencies Trust began in 1982 and collectively we save more than $20 million annually.
Just one year after Girl Scouts of the USA was founded in 1912 in Georgia, the second troop in the nation found its roots in Tampa at Hyde Park United Methodist Church – Girl Scouts of West Central Florida. Today, they proudly serve nearly 20,000 girls and nearly 8,500 adult members in Citrus, Hernando, Hillsborough, Marion, Pasco, Pinellas, Polk and Sumter counties of Florida.
Nonprofits Have Options
Federal law allows 501(c)(3)s, like Girl Scouts of West Central Florida, to stop paying their unemployment taxes and to self fund their own programs. Doing so can save organizations 40 to 60 percent on those unemployment insurance costs. At 501(c) Agencies Trust, we help organizations manage their unemployment expenses, provide employers with a certified educational series, provide separated employees with reemployment services and offer HR Services including unlimited access to a staffed hotline.
501(c) Agencies Trust consists of both large national agencies such as Boys and Girls Clubs, Y-USA, Feeding America and United Cerebral Palsy as well as smaller stand-alone organizations.
