The W2 is one of the most familiar forms in all of payroll. It is how we are introduced to tax filing season after our first job. As employees, we were already over the shock of gross vs net pay. As we became professionals, we were introduced to a variety of withholdings and benefits that populated our pay stubs.

As employers, we quickly learned that accounting for payroll taxes is no easy matter. This is especially true for medium to large-sized employers who offer a wide range of benefits, operate in multiple states, have traveling workers, etc. We learned that ‘Pay” includes more than just salaries or wages. We learned that not all payments are subject to all payroll taxes.

The W2 is a form that includes all payroll and withholding information for each employer in a calendar year. The W3 summarizes information on all W2s.

Why should you Attend: The IRS requires employers to report wage and salary information for employees on Form W-2. Your W-2 also reports the amount of federal, state, and other taxes withheld from your paycheck. As an employee, the information on your W-2 is extremely important when preparing your tax return. Sounds simple, doesn’t it?

There are 20 boxes on the W2, and 34 codes to use in box 12 alone. If your compensation structure includes benefits, is subject to FMLA, grants a myriad of cafeteria plan benefits, has employees who work in more than one state, etc…. this form is far from simple. There are changes almost every year of one sort or another, and even the most well-maintained of payroll systems can miss some important edits. This can result in the forms being kicked back, which results in a penalty and interest assessed on EACH W2 filed late. Further, if what’s on them doesn’t match your employees’ tax returns, they face penalties and even audits.

Because no payroll system runs perfectly, reconciliation of W2 information is crucial. Employers also need to understand special situations that affect reporting, common errors to avoid, penalties for non-compliance, and more. So join Mark Schwartz in this informative webinar - and you will be able to evaluate your system for compliance.
