Most audits are routine and selected at random.

Your notification gives you:

  • The date, time, and place of the audit
  • The period of time the audit will cover
  • A list of the business records you must provide the auditor

Use this opportunity to contact the auditor to confirm the appointment and introduce yourself. The auditor will explain the steps that follow.

After the audit is complete, the auditor will review the results with you. If there are additional contributions due, we will ask you to pay the amount due. If you disagree, the auditor can explain what to do next.

Many audits result in no additional contributions due or reveal an overpayment that we will refund to you.

Make your audit an opportunity to learn about the New York State Department of Labor. If you have questions, ask the auditor. When the auditor does not know the answer, they can point you in the right direction.
