Payroll Update 2016:
New Paperwork, New Laws and Required Changes for the New Year
Happy New (Payroll) Year! Just days into 2016 and you're already facing pressures bearing down on your payroll operations. Are you ready to meet them? For example:
- You're not done with tax year 2015 … yet. There are FUTA credit reductions to determine and budget for, the impact of tax extenders legislation to consider (including retroactive reinstatement of parity between mass transit benefits and parking benefits), and more.
- Major tax reform is probably off the table for now. But don't let that fool you. New federal laws increase payroll tax penalties, change the due dates for your corporate returns and yank passports from individuals with tax debts. Of course, Payroll will bear the brunt of these new laws.
- The IRS has issued a raft of payroll tax regulations, and proposed regulations from the Department of Labor will ratchet up the amount employees must earn to be exempt from overtime. Finally, the IRS and its sister agencies continue to issue guidance on compliance with the Affordable Care Act.
- There's a key FLSA case pending before the U.S. Supreme Court. Word on the street is that it may continue to permit class action lawsuits for unpaid overtime.
Find out what you must do (and NOT do) this year to stay in compliance with federal and state payroll laws. Join payroll expert Alice Gilman, Esq., editor of Payroll Legal Alert and Payroll Compliance Handbook, on Wednesday, January 27, for our brand-new webinar, Payroll Update 2016: New Paperwork, New Laws and Required Changes for the New Year.
