  • 90 minutes

There are significant compliance issues for employers when employees cross state lines in the course of employment. Frequently, multi-state employment issues arise when the employer has business locations in more than one state. However, issues also arise when individual employees perform services in more than one state, live in one state and work in another, move from one state to another, or telecommute across state lines. Compliance issues directly related to payroll include identification of the states for which the business is liable for the collection and payment of income tax, and compliance with the rules for each state regarding tax collection, payment, and reporting.

This webinar will provide you with information on required documentation and ways to avoid problems and penalties.

Join this webinar with expert speaker Patrick Haggerty, where he will give a better understanding of the payroll tax and compliance implications of conducting business within a state, and multi-state employment issues that arise when the employer has business locations in more than one state.

Why You Should Attend:

Creation of nexus in a new state or local tax jurisdiction creates tax and compliance issues for a business such as liability of business income, franchise, property, sale taxes, employment taxes, and apportionment, and reporting compliance issues . Employers can inadvertently create nexus when employees work within a taxing jurisdiction. Failure to properly withhold or pay taxes to the appropriate jurisdiction can lead to fines and penalties as well as employer liability and possible personal liability of employer officers and managers for under-withheld employee taxes. Correcting errors after the fact can be an expensive and time-consuming process.
