Tax issues associated with employment require employers to properly report tens of thousands of dollars in payroll taxes. Proper classification of workers is required. Occasionally, employers who want to save on employment tax misclassify workers as independent contractors. Many times, these workers are actually employees.
In addition to employee classification, this webinar includes other employment issues such as: reporting household worker compensation on Schedule H; providing employee compensation in the form of property; the tax treatment of legal awards and settlements; tax treatment of moving expenses for a worker; taxation of fringe benefits; and employer responsibilities associated with foreign workers.
Fall Tax School webinars feature audio instruction, plus a powerpoint presentation. Each course includes a set of materials that accompany the course presentation.
Registration Fee: $40.00
