About This Course:
Many states have become aggressive when enforcing their non-resident state income tax withholding rules, and state payroll tax auditors are now questioning whether or not you have workers "performing services" in their state.
The definition of "performing services" also differs for each state, and compliance with each state's rules - and even knowing what they are - is difficult. For instance:
- What do you do when you have an employee with a residence address different from their work address?
- What are the requirements when you decide to hold your annual training in a state that has a state income tax withholding - and no threshold or minimum days required before withholding is expected
- What do you do when you have workers who work in several different states?
This audio conference will help you to know the taxation and reporting requirements for all states where your organization has employees working - or in some cases - living.What You'll Learn:
