  • There is no one-size-fits-all answer here. Someone needs to either read the contract or talk to the 3rd party. If the employee is not paying for the benefit (my choice), then SOMEONE has to handle both sides of the FICA. If your contract says that t…
  • Agreed with other comment. One other point. From the employer's standpoint, their legally mandated objective is not to help you get your 1040 withholding perfect for year end. It is to use one of the legal withholding methods IRS mandates for employ…
  • Sorry, no idea. Remember that you not only have PA state taxes, but locals as well, all of which can be different. If God truly hated me and moved my company's nexus into PA, I would get one of the paid payroll library services (APA, BNA, CCH, RI…
  • Yes and no. The employee can request you pay him/her/it one million dollars a week, does not mean it will happen. IRS requires you to use a legal withholding method but this is not IRS related withholding and IRS bases it's penalties on under withho…
  • @payrolluser said: Paid in pennies - David, that's an amazing story! And they say payroll isn't fun. Paycard programs have changed (for the better) over the years. Little or no cost to employee or employer, and the vendor does the heavy li…
  • One more time. Direct deposit rocks. Everything else does not. I am in agreement that pay card is better then it use to be and better then checks or cash, but I have done 43 state payroll before and pay card legality is not the same, state to state.…
  • New to me. I have used ADP since 1986 and they have always been very mechanically predictable. Horrible customer service, but great IT processing. I have never found an ADP "error" that did not turn out to be them correctly following the bad instruc…
  • There is no simple answer here. Start with this for the federal rules. The 50 states (in theory) could each have different rules, as could the local jurisdiction. https://turbotax.intuit.com/tax-tips/investments-and-taxes/employee-stock-purchase-…
  • NOT!!!! my area of expertise, but PAC is handled by FEC and as far as I can tell neither DOL or IRS have any interest. I do not know CO law (if any) and I have seen nothing (not looked very hard) that requires W-2 reporting. If someone knows differe…
  • Agreed. Make sure that you pay all 2018 UI taxes due on the federal/state quarters for 4th quarter.
  • Pretty much all compensation is legally taxable wages. IRS does not have a "finders/keepers" rule. Any thing of value the employee "receives" (very broadly defined) of value is almost always taxable wages to the employee at time of receipt. Whether …
  • With most companies StartDate = FirstDayWorked. That is why when you used defined fields you need to "define" exactly what the field means. There are legal reasons to track FirstDayWorked. Now you are talking about BenefitStartDate, which is normall…
  • All NY taxes.
