Taxes, Garnishments, and More: How to Withhold


Payroll Deductions: What You Can & Can’t Deduct From Employee Wages. Payroll deductions can be a potential minefield of withholdings, and you need to read the fine print to make sure you get it right. One wrong calculation can cost substantial penalties and interest—not to mention upset workers and break trust.

Join payroll pro Vicki M. Lambert to take a comprehensive look at payroll—well beyond hours worked, pay, and taxes. Learn how to calculate withholdings such as child support and till shortages. And find out what the legal limits to those withholdings are.

After attending this ‘Payroll Deductions: What You Can & Can’t Deduct From Employee Wages’ webinar, you will know which taxes you must deduct and which are voluntary, the proper limits of specific deductions, and how many creditor garnishments you can honor. You will be able to handle lodging and meals (whether as pay or perk). And you’ll know how to tackle tricky payroll scenarios, such as what to do when you advance pay to a worker who up and quits before it’s paid back.

Proper payroll is crucial—learn to protect your company from financial missteps.
