Webinar Description

Employers and payroll professionals are entrusted with our employees’ payroll funds.  You need to be aware of problem areas in the processing of payroll that, if done incorrectly, can lead to penalties and fines – especially in dealing with employees’ taxable and nontaxable compensation.  These processing errors lead to mistakes on returns and remittances to the federal and state governments.  Employers can be penalized for both under-withholding and over-withholding.  Employers are deemed to hold payroll amounts for the benefit of our employees.  You have an obligation to withhold properly on your employees’ payroll checks and remit withholding amounts in a timely fashion.  Common mistakes include characterizing a nontaxable benefit as a taxable benefit (certain employee expense reimbursements) and making mathematical and clerical errors on Forms 941and W2.  Employers can be held liable for instances of failure to deliver an employee’s regular or final paycheck.  You also need to know when it is illegal to subtract items from your employees’ checks (e.g. for broken or lost tools or shortages in a cash drawer).  Join experienced payroll consultant Pamela Shull as she teaches you how to process your payroll efficiently and legally.
