Non-Resident and Mobile Workers: State Tax Traps for Employers
Anticipating and Avoiding Unnecessary Withholding Tax Duties and Nexus Triggers
Recording of a 110-minute CPE webinar with Q&A
This webinar will familiarize corporate tax professionals with differing state policies on withholding tax obligations for non-resident employees or those employees who work in other states periodically. The panel will outline a framework for companies to avoid unplanned and unwanted nexus, taxes or administration.
- Principals of state tax and nexus in this area
- Latest developments in state positions
- Laws, regulations, court rulings
- Potential federal and multi-state solutions to the issue
- Particular issues with unemployment taxes
- Particular issues with withholding taxes
- Administrative challenges and options
- Trends in audit
- Background on HR, stock plan, relevant payroll systems
- Challenges with employee movement
The panel will address these and other on-point issues:
- Withholding tax issues: What are the de minimis standards for non-resident employee visits to different states requiring companies to register for withholding tax purposes? When does telecommuting trigger nexus for an out of state company? How much tax should be allocated to each state?
- State corporate income tax issues: For which states can occasional employee visits for certain purposes actually exceed P.L. 86-272 protections? Can withholding tax registration start a domino effect toward an eventual corporate income tax bill?
- Corporate tax department strategies: How can tax professionals effectively oversee and influence their companies’ use and management of traveling employees and telecommuters?
