Taxing Your Remote Workforce: Compliance Guidelines for Employers
COVID-19 broke down the barriers to remote work, and many companies are still operating without a centralized office.
While there are significant benefits to having a distributed workforce, it also raises complex compliance questions – particularly around taxation.
Identifying the jurisdiction where a remote employee owes state and local taxes is complex. Employers need to track and manage taxation for distributed employees, understand what triggers nexus, and properly withhold taxes from employee pay.
