Expense reimbursements are under the IRS microscope … are you easy pickings for an audit?

The IRS is laser focused on your payroll procedures these days, including your handing of employees’ expense reimbursements. And it’s not just the IRS. With so many people working from home, employees are filing more class-action lawsuits over unreimbursed expenses for computer, internet, cell phones, furniture, insurance costs and more. Six nationwide employers recently had to pony up more than $22 million for unreimbursed business expenses.

Employee reimbursements can be confusing. Which costs must you repay? Which can you reimburse tax-free? What’s the right way to handle these transactions? And how has the pandemic changed your responsibilities?

You need to get this right EVERY time. In this popular webinar, learn the most up-to-date rules and requirements for expense reimbursements. Discover how to spot the holes in your organization’s compliance BEFORE the IRS does!
