Under double-entry accounting, the FUTA tax will result in 1) a liability, and 2) a cost that is immediately expensed or assigned as a product cost. (The cost of the FUTA tax on employees involved in manufacturing activities will be assigned to products. The cost of the FUTA tax on employees in the selling and administrative activities should be expensed with their salaries and wages as selling and administrative expense.)
