Have your employees, employer or client asked you: 
  • What can you pay employees and it not taxable as employee wages? 
  • Why did you put my car allowance in my W-2?
  • Why are my moving expenses in my W-2?
  • Are the education expenses you paid for me taxable?
  • What kind of non-taxable benefits does your company have?
If you’ve been asked any of these questions, this is the course for you.  
Employee expense reimbursements are subject to IRS guidelines for records they want us to keep. If not handled correctly and reimbursements do not meet IRS guidelines, expenses may be disallowed as a deduction and considered compensation to those employees, leaving the employer responsible for the associated payroll taxes– plus any penalties.
Taxable and nontaxable fringe benefit are scattered throughout the Internal Revenue Code. Benefits can be hidden in Sec 274, 162, 119, 132, 127, and 82. Add in numerous Announcements, Notices and Regulations and we have a complex set of rules to follow.  
This course will concentrate on the development of an Accountable Expense Reimbursement Plan under Sec 274 and accompanying regulations plus recent pronouncements and inflation increases.
