About The Event
The COVID-19 pandemic and the declaration of a national emergency raises questions about the treatment of various fringe benefits. This includes reimbursement for work at home expenses, paid and unpaid leave, sick pay, dependent care costs, medical expenses, leave sharing arrangements, and disaster relief payments. This session will include a discussion of the tax treatment of benefits employers may provide to employees during the national disaster.
The session will also cover the general rules for fringe benefits including benefits that may be excluded from employee wages as well as benefits that are fully or partially taxable. The rules for exclusion vary for different benefits and even for different taxes with regard to the same benefit. The rules are complex and can be confusing.
For taxable non-cash benefits, valuation can be a complex process and are sometimes subject to special rules. It is also critical to know when to treat a benefit as provided to the employee so that the employer is compliant with tax withholding and deposit requirements.
