Preparing for year-end should not begin in October or November as it may have in the past. Preparation should begin in January and be conducted throughout the calendar year. This is especially important now as the IRS is looking at year-end compliance issues. In this webinar from expert Vicki Lambert, we will give the latest best practices to help your payroll department transition from a year-end crunch to a smooth and compliant year-end process. We will discuss how checklists can help keep you on track to ensure all tasks are completed. How a simple two-page memo can prevent dozens of employee questions. We will cover how your duplicate form W-2 request form and procedures should be set up and in place in advance of issuing the forms and how it will assist you when processing those requests in the upcoming year.

We will provide updates too for the calendar year 2018 on such items as social security wage base, deferred compensation limits, mileage rates and Forms W-2 and 941. This webinar will provide a sample of a form to request a duplicate Form W-2 that can be used by the attendee in their own department as well as information on setting up the procedures for requesting the form. We will also cover any late-breaking legislation/regulation changes which may result from the new administration or congressional action either by inclusion in the event or through information updates which will be made available to attendees after the fact. 

Session Highlights:

  • Reconciliation of Form W-2 to Form 941 and why it must be done

  • Update on year-beginning annual changes for social security wage base, fringe benefit limitations, federal per diem allowance, standard mileage rate, qualified transportation fringe benefits, and more.

  • How to use the required year-end notice to update your employees for the coming year

  • Best practices on organizing the payroll department for year-end including action item checklists for Form W-2, Year-end and Year beginning to ensure a smooth process
