2016 Payroll Tax Update: New Forms and Requirements Explained
|Date / Time:
How are your payroll tax requirements changing for 2016? How can you be sure you are compliant with IRS, Affordable Care Act (ACA), and other regulations?
This is a critical time for HR. Why? First, due to the ACA, many systems need to adjust to handle employee-share withholdings and to record payments on an information return. And, with paid sick leave laws building momentum, systems should be equipped to track hours (even for salaried workers) and accrue appropriate minimum sick leave.
Also, timely and accurate reporting of information returns is critical. Failure to file W2s and to give them to workers can result in per-item penalties from $30 to $100. Additionally, continued failure to file 1099s and 1096s can result in total penalties of between $250,000 and $1.5 million.
Other issues that must be on your radar are bonuses, holiday gifts and other compensation: These can be annualized for payroll tax purposes, and failing to properly withhold can result in back taxes, penalty and interest. And non-discretionary bonuses must be used to calculate the regular rate of pay for overtime, meaning you must pay overtime on the portion of the bonus applicable to the weeks in which the worker worked overtime. This is frequently overlooked, and can result in audits for overtime compliance as well as payroll tax compliance.

|About Webcasts / Audio Conferences / Podcasts:|
Webcasts, audio conferences, and podcasts are presentations that you
attend via the Internet, phone, or mobile device at a specified date and time for "live" versions, or at your convenience for "recorded" and "On-Demand" versions.
versions are interactive, meaning that participants can ask questions in real time, plus are a very cost-effective form of training because 1) you receive fast, convenient learning without
any out-of-office time; 2) you can invite as many colleagues as you'd like to listen in on a single phone line; 3) you incur no travel expenses; and 4) you and your colleagues are back
at work immediately after the session ends!
And though with recorded versions you do lose the ability to ask questions, you gain the ability to hear the presentation numerous
times and to share it with others in your office.
Handout materials and the phone number for live presentations are made available to you prior to the event via email from the
presenter and from the "MyAccount" link on the menu bar. Copies of the presentations are included with recorded versions.
