File Electronic UIA 1028, Employer's Quarterly Wage/Tax Report

Register/File 1028

All employers, once registered and determined liable, are required to disclose their tax liability by filing a quarterly tax report.

Two options are available to file UIA 1028, Employer's Quarterly Wage/Tax Report, using our electronic service.  Through registering for an Employer Web Account, an employer or their designated representative can file the UIA 1028, Employer's Quarterly Wage/Tax Report or through an electronic file submit (EFS).  In addition to these two services, the registration for the Employer Web Account also allows an employer to file Quarterly Tax Reports, make electronic Tax Payments, Request Tax Statements and Access/Update UIA Account Information on-line. 

Our electronic service is easy, fast, secure and convenient.  Employers benefit because wage information is recorded and available the next business day after being sent by employers. Our wage database is more accurate as a result of e-filing and unemployment claims are being handled faster.


To use this on-line service for 1028s due by the 25th day of the month following the end of the quarter, please create an account on Michigan Web Account Manager (MiWAM) as soon as possible if you have not already done so.  A password is required to use this account.  Once registered, a password will be mailed to you in a confirmation letter sent to your business address of record. Once you have your password, you may file 1028s by the due dates.


Set up your MiWAM account here.  Click on the link ‘Register as a new user' and follow the steps.  A web account is necessary so that unauthorized people cannot view sensitive data or submit false information. It is recommended that you read the MiWAM instructions.  These instructions can be found by clicking on the ‘Help' link once you enter MiWAM.


Employers may manage their web account, change their password, username, and contact information, view account information and add or change authorized users to their account.  Adding users enables employers to authorize others to act on their behalf.  For instance, an employer may authorize one employee to perform a certain function while having a second employee handle another function.
