  • Describe general taxation rules that apply to fringe benefits
  • Describe the taxation rules that apply to voluntary plans, including fixed indemnity plans
  • Discuss the taxation of employer-provided group term life insurance coverage over $50,000
  • Discuss the pros and cons of paying premiums pre-tax or post-tax for long-term or short-term disability
  • Discuss the taxation of wellness program rewards
  • Discuss the potential consequences of evading employment taxes
  • Describe best practices when offering voluntary plans, fringe benefits, and wellness rewards

This 60-minute intermediate level webinar will help employers understand their obligations when they offer benefits that are subject to income tax withholding and employment taxes.
