Don’t Miss APA’s Final Payroll Chat of 2018

BY: APA Staff | 12/11/18

Take a break from your year-end and the holidays to join the APA for our final #Paynews chat of the year! We want to know what you wish someone had told you to be mindful of before processing your very first payroll year-end

The 30-minute discussion will be hosted by Jodi Parsons, CPP, Director of Payroll for the Kansas City Royals, and Jon Schausten, CPP, Payroll and HRIS Manger for Vertellus, as they discuss the following questions with you:

Q1-Do you provide employees explanations of additional taxable income on their W-2s, for example, relocation, personal use of a company car, and gift cards?

Q2-Have you double-checked that you’ve ordered enough W-2s and 1095s if you print in-house?  Did you perform a test run?

Q3-Have you gotten all moving expense/reimbursement amounts from Accounts Payable?  Are they taxed properly?

Q4-What resources will you use to stay up-to-date with last minute changes for 2018 and/or 2019?

Q5-How often do you complete reconciliations related to W-2s?

Q6-Have you asked if your STD and/or LTD is processed in-house or by a TPA?  Have you verified who has depositing and reporting responsibility?

Q7-What do you like to do to relax and keep calm during the year-end craze?

The discussion begins at 3 p.m. ET on Thursday, December 13. Be part of the conversation by joining our chatroom portal Twchat or participate through your Twitter account by following along with #Paynews and including the hashtag in your tweets.
