Topic:  Top Executives' Frequently Asked Questions About Reporting & Withholding on Fringe Benefits

A regulatory and procedural overview of several popular but confusing fringe benefits – including ones that concern top executives, or that are often under current payroll tax audits.  This workshop explores on-premises meals (IRC Sec. 119), travel allowances (IRS 62(c) and 132), and a wide variety of fringe benefits IRC Sec. 132, including discounts, free services, awards, prizes, and moving expenses. We will also discuss current payroll audit controversies, and procedural steps to follow in payroll audits that can help reduce your employer’s liability for non-withheld taxes, interest, and penalties (including large potential penalties for wrong W-2s or 1099s).  In some audits the IRS makes math mistakes that can inflate the employer’s liability four-fold, so you should know the rules to follow to keep your employer compliant. Join us at this session for helpful insights on these issues.
