This webinar will cover the proper employee taxation of fringe benefits in today’s changed work environment to employees and deductibility by the employer. Our panel of employee benefits professionals will highlight how automobile, apartment, education, and many other commonly offered benefits are reported and taxed and when these benefits escape taxation.


Fringe benefits offered to employees expand well beyond health insurance and cafeteria plans. Some benefits are easily identified as non-taxable to employees and others may escape taxation only after careful analysis of the facts and circumstances. Meals have undergone complex recent changes. Travel and corporate apartments are excludable if qualified as business which is all the more complex with recent expanded remote work. Spousal benefits continue to be a sore point as taxable to executives except in extremely rare situations.

Listen as our panel of federal taxation experts explains which benefits are taxable and non-taxable for employees and employers and their related reporting obligations.
