Taxing Your Remote Workforce: Compliance Guidelines for Employers
COVID-19 broke down the barriers to remote work, and most companies have adapted to operating without a centralized office.
While there are a lot of benefits to having a distributed workforce moving forward, it also raises compliance questions – particularly around taxation.
Identifying the jurisdiction where a remote employee owes state and local taxes is more complicated than ever. Employers need to track and manage taxation for distributed employees, understand what triggers nexus, and properly withhold taxes from employee pay.
It’s a lot to keep track of, but don’t worry – we've got your back.
Join us for an in-depth training that will ensure your organization stays tax-compliant while working remotely.
In this session, we’ll discuss:
- When and how telecommuting workers can trigger nexus
- State and local taxes that can be impacted by telecommuting
- How to determine an employee's unemployment state vs. their withholding state
- The consequences of non-compliance
- And more!
