Chat with Experts on Major 2020 Compliance Topics

BY: Cynthia Crise | 06/08/20

Payroll has seen many major developments in 2020. Join the American Payroll Association (APA) as we recap some of the biggest changes impacting payroll processes during our Mid-Year Compliance Review #PayNews chat on Thursday, June 11 at 3 p.m. EDT.

The hour-long discussion will be led by APA’s Curt Tatum, Esq., Director of Federal Payroll Compliance, and Alice Jacobsohn, Esq., Senior Manager of Government Relations.

They’ll share their insight with you on the following questions:

  1. What have you found most challenging, from a payroll processing perspective, as your organization has reacted to COVID-19 related issues?  
  2. Has your organization been affected by new federal or state paid sick leave requirements?
  3. Have you been asked for payroll data in relation to Paycheck Protection Program loan?
  4. Has your organization requested an advance on tax credits for providing emergency paid sick leave, expanded family and medical leave, or for retaining employees?
  5. Have you seen the changes to the Form 941 and its instructions regarding the COVID-19 related tax credits?
  6. Has there been an increase in demand for electronic pay or other changes requested by employees?
  7. Do you think your department will be fundamentally changed once the COVID-19 crisis has passed (e.g., more members of your department working from home)?
  8. Has your organization decided whether it will truncate SSNs on employee copies of Forms W-2 that you will furnish to your employees next year?
  9. Are you ready to use the new Form 1099-NEC to report payments of nonemployee compensation?
