Have you implemented all the necessary payroll tax legislative changes for this year? Are you set with employees for the start of the New Year with proper plans for handling new Forms W-4 and implementation of new wage thresholds for Social Security and Medicare and all the different benefit plans? Will your year-end procedures guide you safely through a correct set of W-2s and balanced Forms 941? Do you know how to get IRS transcripts to make sure your accounts are in balance, which ones to get and how to read them? Have you caught all the fringe benefit items that need to be specially added to Forms W-2 at year-end, such as for personal use of company auto, the cost of group-term life insurance over $50,000, and fringe benefits paid to shareholders of S corporations? 

Recent health care reforms have major impact on payroll tax requirements. Do you understand how to handle reporting of the health insurance rebates that were paid this year and the cost of employer-sponsored health insurance on Form W-2?  Are you ready to limit your employees' health FSA deferrals to $2500? 

Join us for this up-to-the-minute webinar covering reporting requirements for Forms W-2 and 941, requirements under health care reform, special W-4 needs for 2013, and 2013 thresholds for retirement plan deferrals and fringe benefits such as transportation and dependent care. We will also cover FUTA updates and other tips for a successful year-end.
