Topic: Prep for Year-End Process
Celebrate year end in style by prepping for year-end processing all year long. We will discuss the importance of completing payroll reconciliation prior to filing your final Form 941 as well as annual Forms W-2.  Best practices for preventing inaccurate data reported on Forms 941 or Form 944, resulting in fewer Forms W-2 C and fewer notices received from the IRS or SSA.
