With the new calendar year, employers and HR professionals need to be at the top of their game to make sure to implement the necessary changes to their payroll for the year ahead.

While comprehensive tax reform is still largely uncertain, there are a variety of new tax rules that have already been set for 2018, including a hike in the maximum amount of earnings subject to Social Security payroll tax.

It’s important for HR and payroll professionals to be ready to communicate and implement this change, among other payroll changes such as deduction limits for retirement and fringe benefit plans.

In addition to tax rate changes from the federal government, employers need to know what changes to municipal or state taxes may affect them, including withholding state income taxes and unemployment taxes.

Get 2018 started on the right foot by learning what to look out for as you prepare your payroll systems for the year ahead, and get useful tips on how to stay on top of the coming changes.

Join us for an in-depth webinar with Elizabeth Bystrom, CPA, who will provide an in-depth review of coming payroll tax changes from the federal government and examples of the types of local laws to watch out for, so you’re well prepared to address changes necessary for your own payroll systems.

You’ll learn how to:
  • Review and stay on top of coming payroll tax changes for 2018
  • Make needed changes to your payroll system to comply with new tax regulations
  • Inform employees who will be affected about the changes they’ll see on their check stubs
  • Prepare for changes that will affect your bottom line
  • Inform employees of changes to their 401K contributions
  • Determine what state taxes may apply and whether there are changes in those rates as well
  • And much more!
