2020 launches a new year of Payroll Currently, a monthly electronic newsletter exclusively for APA members. Now in its 28th year of publication, Payroll Currently contains timely and accurate information on new legislation and regulations affecting payroll, benefits, and human resources.

Payroll Compliance News for Members

Each issue of Payroll Currently includes concise explanations of the latest rules and regulations from the Internal Revenue Service, Social Security Administration, U.S. Department of Labor, and other federal agencies. Relevant court decisions are also analyzed and included. This information helps you understand the regulatory changes affecting payroll tax withholding, reporting, and depositing, and keep you in compliance.

This free member benefit also includes “Inside Washington” – the latest from the APA’s Government Relations office – state and local news, and occasional special reports. Members receive an email when new issues are available. Included with the email is a link to APA’s Compliance Calendar.

Issue 1 Features Withholding Scenarios Using Publication 15-T

The January issue of Payroll Currently (Issue 1, Vol. 28) features in-depth coverage of IRS Publication 15-T, Federal Income Tax Withholding Methods, and how to use it along with the new 2020 Form W-4, Employee’s Withholding Certificate. The coverage includes three withholding scenarios that APA created to show you how to calculate federal income tax withholding. The Withholding Scenarios are also available on APA’s Compliance Hot Topic about the 2020 Form W-4.
