Why You Should Attend

Paying employees is one of the biggest expenses for a company. Any company who has employees is required to withhold and pay payroll taxes. In addition to what you withhold from an employee there are tax forms that must be filed and given to the employee. The size of your business, where you are located, where your employees live and work; all of these things factor into what you must withhold from employee’s wages and what you must pay in as an employer. Understanding these things and knowing how much to withhold, how often to pay, and what forms to file and what information to include is sometimes overwhelming.

No matter how much we double check figures and try to make sure everything is correct on these forms before they are sent out there is always a time when an error is made or something was left out. We will discuss in detail of how to amend the 2023 W-2 form and quarterly 941 forms. Details of how to make these amendments, how quickly you must get them to the employee and the government agencies that are affected will be covered.

These types of changes also affect other government agencies such as State and Local forms. Making sure you are in compliance and completing all the necessary corrections in a timely matter is key. The IRS and State and Local Governments assess big fines and penalties if businesses do not record amendments properly and get them to employee timely. You want to avoid these liabilities as much as possible. This webinar will help you to better understand all types of situations that can cause you to amend these forms and how to make these amendments.
