Learn how to uncover and fix policy and practice errors, step-by-step!
I-9 audits have led to over $7 million in civil fines against employers. Findings from these investigations are also used to initiate criminal investigations.
Two years into the IRS' employment-tax audit initiative, it appears that the endeavor is designed to generate additional revenue for the government. Although the agency's chief of employment taxes says the plan is to make the audits "as least burdensome as possible," there are many steps to an audit and it's not as simple as reviewing your organization's Form 941 for a given tax year.
By participating in this interactive webinar, you'll learn:
- What the IRS has on its audit radar
- How to prepare for IRS' scrutiny of executive compensation arrangements
- Which employee benefit arrangements are being audited
- How employee/independent contractor misclassification is under the microscope and what you MUST do to prepare
- The requirements for a proper I-9 completion program
- Common pitfalls when managing and completing I-9s
- Tips for self-auditing your organization compliance status
- And much more.
The IRS is cracking down on the compensation and employment classifications that generate withholding obligations, and then further auditing those components for reporting and tax compliance. Any employee benefits that are nontaxable are the focus of the audits, and the IRS wants to ensure that those plans and policies are truly nontaxable.
The best way to make sure your organization is in compliance to get up-to-date on the IRS' newest initiatives and catch any mistakes before it's too late. In just 90 minutes, you'll learn how to prepare and respond to the IRS' latest initiatives, keeping your organization on track and in compliance. Register now for this must-attend event risk-free. .
