2019 Payroll Tax Updates: Inflation Adjustments and Other TCJA-inspired Payroll-Related Changes

Live Webinar: Wednesday, January 2, 2019

1:30 p.m. to 3:00 p.m. Eastern / 10:30 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. Pacific


WEBINAR SNAPSHOT: Learn how upcoming payroll tax changes from the federal and local government affect your organization and best practices for addressing your payroll systems for 2019.



Employers and HR professionals have to be on the top of their game to implement the necessary changes to their payroll for the year ahead. As we see every year, inflation adjustments are implemented, and tax tables change. And, this year we are seeing increases in key areas such as the new robust standard deduction amounts and child tax credits, as well as increases for various other credits and thresholds for the qualified business income deduction under Section 199A.

For instance, the cap on maximum earnings that will be subject to a Social Security payroll tax will increase by $4,500 from $128,400 to $132,900. Knowing this ahead of time, you can set the tone and be proactive, notifying employees ahead of time when they see their taxes take a bigger slice. Some employers may want to consider giving a pay raise to those employees who will be disappointed to be taking home less than they did last year. These are questions to get ahead of, along with other federal tax changes.  

Don’t forget about the state side of things!  In addition to tax rate changes from the federal government, employers need to know what municipal or state tax changes may affect them, including withholding state income taxes and unemployment taxes.

Get 2019 started on the right foot. 

Join us on January 2 for a look at how to prepare your 2019 payroll systems. You’ll get useful tips on how to stay on top of the coming changes with payroll tax expert and CPA Elizabeth Bystrom, who will share the latest information on your payroll tax compliance obligations.
