Course Description

Course Description

The W-2 form is a wage and tax report that employers create annually for each of their employees. The W-2 shows the employee’s gross earnings, as well as their deductions for income, Social Security or Medicare taxes, certain child care account contributions, and contributions to certain retirement accounts. The W-4, also known as the employee’s withholding allowance certificate, tells employers how much income tax to withhold from an employee’s pay.

The difference between a W-2 and W-4 is that the W-4 tells employers how much tax to withhold from an employee’s paycheck; the W-2 reports how much an employer paid an employee and how much tax is withheld during the year. Both are required IRS tax forms.

Learn the latest updates on Form W-4 and Form W-2 wage and withholding reporting.  This webinar will prepare your staff for this filing year, improve your employee reporting set-up and maintenance practices, and reduce your risk of complaints from the IRS. Experienced CGMA and businessman Miles Hutchinson will review the current law and regulations regarding the filing of Forms W-2 and will provide practical guidance in these areas that have become the subject of increasing IRS scrutiny.
