|Duration: 90 minutes||Speaker: Margie Faulk|
On Aug. 28, the IRS issued Notice 2020-65, allowing employers to suspend withholding and paying to the IRS eligible employees’ Social Security payroll taxes. But many questions employers have raised were left unanswered.
The payroll tax “holiday,” or suspension period, runs from Sept. 1 through Dec. 31, 2020, and applies only to employees whose wages are less than $4,000 for a biweekly pay period, including salaried workers earning less than $104,000 per year.
Companies that suspend collection of employees’ payroll tax would collect additional amounts from workers’ paychecks from Jan. 1 through April 30 next year to repay the tax obligation.
Why Should You Attend
It remains uncertain, however, how many private-sector employers will suspend collection of their employees’ Social Security taxes, and, if they decide to do so, when they could reasonably adjust their payroll systems to stop withholding these taxes.
Employers that use a payroll firm should look for announcements on how the tax holiday will work, including any notices to employees. Given that many September payrolls were already processed in the closing weeks of August, before the guidance came out, “generally it will be shortly after Sept. 1” before Social Security tax withholding could be deferred.
Employers that maintain their own payroll systems may need weeks or months to get the technical work done, so it may be October, November or even later.
