Welcome to USTAR

USTAR makes filing your Missouri unemployment tax reports easier than ever! It automatically calculates total, excess and taxable wages and the contributions due. Take the Online Tour or view Frequently Asked Questions to become familiar with USTAR.

Earlier versions of Internet Explorer, Netscape and some other browsers may not work with this application. System requirements are available for review.

It is recommended reports and/or payments be submitted at least two business days prior to the due date to avoid unforeseen network problems that may result in interest and/or penalty.

If you experience any problems, please call our help desk at (573) 751-1995, Monday thru Friday, 8:00 AM to 5:00 PM CT (except holidays). Or send an email to mo-ustar.helpdesk@labor.mo.gov.

For security reasons, please logout of USTAR when finished. USTAR is designed to logout after remaining on one page for 30 minutes. However, auto logout does not save data nor does it ensure the session has been closed.

If you start a report and cannot complete it within 30 minutes, click the Save & Quit button. Saved data can be retrieved for up to 30 days.

The Division of Employment Security does not recommend using USTAR on a shared personal computer.
