  • 90 minutes

Complying with the tax code, tax withholding requirements and deposit schedules for the IRS and one state is complicated enough. But for the multistate employer, multiply this by 5, 10, or 20, or even 50 and it can turn into a payroll department's nightmare. Add a pandemic to this mix and you can have the makings of a horror movie! Not only are there more rules and regulations to comply with, but the penalties can multiply if mistakes are made. But for the payroll department that must handle employees who work in multiple states simultaneously or who travel to different states at different times for the employer the taxing and reporting requirements can become an arduous task at best and at worse a total fiasco.  Employees working from home can add even more to the complexity. Also, an employer with employees working in multiple states does not just have taxes to deal with. Now there are also wage and hour laws to contend with! In a different (read: higher) minimum wage? Are the overtime rules different? Would that employee still be exempt?

This webinar discusses the handling of state taxes, wage and hour law, and garnishments when an employee lives in one state and works in another or works in two or more states simultaneously.  Includes determining liability as an employer, reciprocal agreements, resident and nonresident taxation, Form W-4 equivalents, state unemployment insurance, wage and hour law requirements, and garnishment withholding including the effects of COVID-19 on these areas!

Session Highlights:

  • To understand nexus and how employment within a state may create nexus for an employer

  • Who is a resident

  • How reciprocal agreements affect the taxation of wages

  • Resident and nonresident taxation policies

  • The four-factor test for state unemployment insurance

  • Income and unemployment taxation of Fringe benefits

  • What wage and hour laws must be followed

  • How to handle income and unemployment insurance taxation for employees working in multiple states

  • How working in multiple states could affect withholding for garnishments

  • Which states require the use of their own Withholding Allowance Certificate, which states allow either theirs or the Form W-4, and which states do not have a form

  • Reporting wages for multistate employees on Form W-2
