Topic : Multi-State Tax Issues for Payroll 2019


This session will cover the issue of nexus and its implications for a business, identification of the states for which the employer is liable for the collection and payment of income tax and state unemployment tax, and the determination of what is required in order to comply with the various state rules regarding tax collection, payment, and reporting.

Why should you attend this webinar?

There are significant compliance issues for employers when employees cross state lines in the course of employment. Frequently, multi-state taxation rules issues arise when the employer has business locations in more than one state.

However, issues also arise when individual employees perform services in more than one state, live in one state and work in another, move from one state to another, or telecommute across state lines.

Compliance issues directly related to payroll training include identification of the states for which the business is liable for the collection and payment of income tax, and compliance with the rules for each state regarding tax collection, payment and reporting. In addition, special rules are used to establish the state that is to receive the unemployment tax for a particular employee. A very significant non-payroll issue is whether the employment creates nexus, i.e. a business presence, within a particular state and whether the employer is subject to that state?s income, franchise, sales and use, or other state business taxes imposed by the state and the related apportionment issues.
