Discussed in this session will be the top ten payroll tax questions asked regularly of a payroll tax consultant by companies of all sizes located throughout the United States.
These questions define the day to day operations of the payroll department and also determine the company’s exposure to employment tax agencies for items that are handled incorrectly.
For instance: Do I withhold at supplemental or the W-4 method on this payment? How and where do I tax an employee that is working from home then traveling out to a client site for part of the week? I have just been contacted by an auditor; what do I do next? Learning Objectives
We will discuss the top ten payroll tax questions as well as the technically correct answer versus the ‘best practice’ response where applicable.
Question and answer time will also be available in the session for any questions that aren’t addressed.
