Payroll Compliance:
Preparing for Year-End and 2020

Year-End Payroll

The most valuable commodity you have is time. And, if you handle payroll compliance, time is running out.

This year, year-end preparation is your best defense against once-in-a-lifetime changes to your W-4 and your withholding processes, necessitated by the big tax reform law.

Employers are also facing intense new scrutiny of their W-2s, 1099s, 1095s and other payroll tax reporting compliance. A new federal law dramatically lowers the threshold for e-filing your information returns.

These changes could trap unsuspecting employers who still think they're below the threshold.

Warning: Form mistakes (or forms filed in the wrong medium) can lead to millions of dollars in tax penalties – and unwanted attention on your department … and you!

The Social Security Administration is clamping down too. Make even ONE critical error in your W-2 reports and you'll be bumped down into non-filer status and become easy penalty bait for the IRS. This is your last, best chance to make sure you get it right!
