Withholding taxes correctly can be an arduous task when an employee works and lives within one state. This task becomes more complex when the employee lives in one state and works in another. But if the employee works in two or more states this process can be overwhelming.
Why Should you Attend:
Complying with the tax code and the tax withholding requirements for the IRS and one state is complicated enough. But for the multistate employer multiply this by 5, 10, 20 or even 40 and it can turn into a payroll department’s worse nightmare keeping track of it all. Not only more rules and regulations to comply with but you must multiple the penalties if you make a mistake as well. Employees who live in one state and work in another or work in two or more states simultaneously require special handing by payroll to ensure that the proper amount of income tax comes out for the correct state. And the employer cannot simply tax for the home state and hope to survive an audit. The question the employer must answer: is it prepared to meet the challenges of multistate taxation?
Objectives of the Presentation:
In this webinar we will discuss the handling of state taxes when an employee lives in one state and works in another, or works in two or more states simultaneously. This includes what taxes to be on the lookout for including locals, determining liability as an employer, how reciprocal agreements can play an important role in determining state withholding, the differences between resident and nonresident taxation, Form W-4 equivalents and state unemployment insurance.
A payroll professional must know the taxation and reporting requirements for all states where the company has employees working or in some cases, living. Which state gets the SUI tax and which gets the income tax for a nonresident working in the state? Does the state have disability insurance and is it done through an insurance company or through a payroll deduction? If the employee is working in two or more states how does the employer calculate the taxable wages for each state?
