So many dollars travel through payrolls. Any glitch in a company’s approach to employment taxes (and related obligations) can lead to unspeakable devastation for both the company and responsible individuals. Often, little, if any, thought, goes into structure, implementation and documentation of payroll tax approaches. It is as if no one is driving the boat. Someone needs to be watching out. At times, that person is the non-tax professional. This course identifies potential and actual life threatening payroll tax disasters (and savings opportunities) and enlightens as to what to do next.
