While competitive salaries often attract top employees to join an employer, employers often provide competitive and attractive prizes, bonuses, awards and other benefits as well, to boost their employees' morale and reward employees for going the extra mile. However, employers must be aware of federal tax laws when providing these benefits, or else employers may find that these benefits are more expensive than they originally thought. This topic will help you learn the different ways that employees may be rewarded for exceptional performance, without incurring additional tax expense, or at least avoiding penalties. Important reporting and withholding requirements to ensure that employers fully comply with their federal tax obligations will also be discussed. This topic will also keep you abreast of important changes in this area under the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act.
