Why Should You Attend

Notably, for 2016, the employer reporting requirements take full effect for employee health care coverage under the Affordable Care Act and the filing deadlines for W-2 Forms have changed.

It is vital that payroll professionals are aware of the changes and use the latest version of the forms. Errors in preparing or filing payroll tax forms can result in costly penalties and interest charges.
