This webinar covers the basics of withholding, depositing, paying and reporting payroll taxes. It provides a good solid foundation for the payroll beginner or an excellent refresher course for the seasoned professional.
Federal income taxes are such a common occurrence in present times it is easy to forget their relatively recent origin. It is also easy to forget that the withholding of these taxes fall under IRS regulations that are strict and non-yielding in many cases. Simply put, the employer either collects the amount due from the employee or pays their own portion and sends it directly to the IRS. But though it sounds simple and basic it is critical for the employer to withholding the taxes correctly based on several factors including:
- The type of payroll frequency used by the employer
- The information supplied on the employee’s form w-4
- The taxable wage base and rate in effect for oasdi or social security taxes
- The rate in effect for Medicare tax
- If the employee is subject to the additional Medicare tax
- Status of the employees such as nonresident alien or expatriate
- The wage base and rate in effect for federal unemployment insurance or futa
The penalties are severe for failing to comply with employment tax rules and procedures since the IRS imposes both civil and criminal penalties on employers. In addition to these penalties, employers also have to pay interest on any underpayment of tax that is a result of noncompliance with these same regulations.
Then once the taxes are withheld and paid they must be reported and reconciled. Which forms are used for the initial reporting and when are they due? Which forms are used to correct already submitted forms? These are critical questions that the payroll professional must have answers to right on the tip of their tongues. So although we like to refer to this as basic payroll it is anything but basic. It is the foundation that supports both quarter-end and year-end as well as all other IRS compliance issues facing the payroll department.
