Payroll Update 2018:
New Tax Code, New Laws and Required Changes

Payroll Update

The tax code recently underwent a profound change and the payroll landscape must change with it – and smart moves in the coming months will help you avoid big trouble (and big fines) down the road.

On Wednesday, August 15, join our timely webinar, Payroll Update 2018: New Tax Code, New Laws and Required Changes, to find out what you must do (and NOT do) this year and next year to stay in compliance with federal and state payroll laws, including the big payroll changes required by the tax bill.

And it's not just tax reform. The IRS is planning to ramp up e-filing by an unprecedented degree in time for filing your 2018 W-2s and 1099s. Plus, discover why a 2018 Supreme Court ruling will likely lead to more IRS payroll audits.

Your trainer for the event will be payroll expert Alice Gilman, Esq., editor of Payroll Legal Alert and Payroll Compliance Handbook. Every attendee will receive a complimentary copy of the valuable 2018 Payroll Checklist.
