Read Frequently Asked Questions

In this training program, participants will learn how to compute the correct or target annual withholding to avoid underwithheld tax penalties, understand how to test employer designed withholding methods for compliance with IRS requirements, and learn to compute withholding using the four alternative methods provided by the IRS.

Why Should You Attend:

The purpose of income tax withholding is to approximate the amount of the employee’s tax for the year based on wage payments made during the year. The wage bracket and percentage methods are the primary methods used to compute withholding based on the employee’s marital status and allowances claimed on Form W-4. Generally those methods work pretty well, but in some situations, they just don’t seem to get the right result. The aggregate and optional flat rate methods used to compute withholding for supplemental wages often result in far too much or too little withholding. The IRS developed several alternatives to the traditional withholding methods designed to provide a closer estimate to the correct amount of withholding required to meet the employee’s tax obligation. Employers may even design their own methods so long as the results fall within certain parameters.

This webinar will explore, in detail, these often overlooked methods and how they may be applied in situations where the regular methods just don’t seem to work the way they should.
