Whether you will send workers across borders, or import from other states, your responsibilities increase exponentially. Some multi state employment laws even conflict with each other.

In addition to payroll tax questions like where to pay and how to calculate SUTA tax or where to withhold SIT, you will learn about all other payroll and HR difficulties, and where to keep up on their frequent changes.

Objectives of the Presentation:

  • Explain how to determine state withholding tax liability
  • Identify who is a resident
  • Describe how reciprocal agreements affect taxation of wages

  • Describe the four factor test for state unemployment insurance

  • Describe how to handle income and unemployment insurance taxation for employees working in multiple states
  • Explain supplemental withholding rates

  • List states that require the use of their own Withholding Allowance Certificate, states that allow either their own certificate or the Form W-4, and states that don’t have a form
  • Explain how to report wages for multistate employees on Form W-2
  • List human resource and legal concerns your company will also face

Why Should You Attend:

If you attend the webinar, you will leave with a better understanding of your current operations - where they are likely in compliance and where they may not be.

You will know what areas of your organization need to be reviewed, and how to evaluate the information obtained in that review. With that information, you will be able to change your payroll management systems in order to increase compliance, and minimize the chance of costly audits or lawsuits.

Further, you will be given resources that provide centralized information from all 50 states and the federal legislature, so you can easily adjust your systems as needed.
