Untangling Multi State Payroll Reporting Complexities

Untangling Multi State Payroll Reporting Complexities

Almost all states require employers to withhold tax from employee wages earned for work performed in that state, even for nonresidents. As a starting point, the default rule of state income tax withholding is to withhold income tax for the state in which services are performed (the work state). But what happens when the employee lives and works in different states. What happens when the individual works in multiple states? This course will explore the obligations to payroll reporting for state purposes including exception cases with state reciprocity and convenience of the employer states. The course will look to “untangle” the complexities around when and how to report to non-resident states and when to withhold and remit state and local taxes.

What you will learn

  • Understand the general rule for non-resident state working time.
  • Explore some difference in treatment of key states.
  • Discuss potential exposure for payroll noncompliance.
  • Review states with reciprocal agreements.
  • Discuss the complexities and current news around convenience of employer states.
  • Discuss planning for the future of work – remote work or hybrid work models
