The COVID-19 pandemic and the declaration of a national emergency raises questions about the treatment of various fringe benefits. This includes reimbursement for work at home expenses, paid and unpaid leave, sick pay, dependent care costs, medical expenses, leave sharing arrangements, and disaster relief payments. This session will include a discussion of the tax treatment of benefits employers may provide to employees during the national disaster. 

In addition, the tax reform provisions of the 2017 Jobs Creation and Tax Act (JCTA) changed the rules for a number of popular benefits. Some benefits which could previously be excluded from employee wages under prior law are now taxable and for some benefits, the employer can no longer deduct some or all of the cost. This webinar covers the important changes tax reform brought to fringe benefits as well as provides an overview of common and some uncommon benefits and the rules governing them. The webinar will also cover “extenders” passed by Congress to reinstate or extend certain benefits that had expired. It is important for employers to “get it right” with regard to whether benefits may be excluded from wages, and if they must be included, comply with federal and state wage and tax withholding, deposit, and reporting requirements.

The session will cover the general rules for fringe benefits including benefits that may be excluded from employee wages as well as benefits that are fully or partially taxable. The rules for exclusion vary for different benefits and even for different taxes with regard to the same benefit. The rules are complex and can be confusing.

For taxable non-cash benefits, valuation can be a complex process and are sometimes subject to special rules. It is also critical to know when to treat a benefit as provided to the employee so that the employer is compliant with tax withholding and deposit. requirements.
