Steps to Prepare for Year-End

HCM_year-end

Year-End is approaching, and though it’s hard to believe, 2023 will be here before we know it. Payroll professionals have much to do to prepare for this important milestone.

We’ve put together a few tips, tricks, and reminders as you prepare for year-end.

Tax Reminder: when you receive letters from any government agency with a new tax rate or deposit information forward a copy to cbizpayrolltax@cbiz.com.

 

Deferred Social Security Final Payment Due 12/31/2022

Tax Payment

The Coronavirus, Aid, Relief and Economic Security Act of 2020 (CARES) gave employers a temporary financial boost. Under the law, employers could defer paying their share of Social Security — but the final payment is due by the end of 2022 to avoid penalty.

The IRS has sent letter 3064C to remind employers of their final balance. Employers who have deferred the employer portion of social security taxes must pay this amount by December 31, 2022—which is extended to January 3, 2023.

 

Form I-9 Compliance Tips


Early this year, a staffing company was fined over one and a half million dollars because they were not complying with I-9 rules. This came after a nearly two-year investigation uncovered numerous serious violations pertaining to I-9 compliance. While this case may not be the norm, the department of Homeland Security has increased I-9 fines, ranging from $252 to $2,508 per I-9 Form. Now is a perfect time for employers to review their I-9 compliance practices, especially considering the increased penalties.

 

Ways to Prepare for Fall Time Change


time changeFall is officially here, and it won’t be long before it is time to turn the clocks back one hour. While that does mean an extra hour of sleep, it can prove to be confusing and has the potential for workplace errors and productivity losses. Ensure that your employees are aware of the upcoming change, so you don’t experience any issues.


 

Minimum Wage Updates

Minimum WagePayroll is complicated, and the laws that govern employment eligibility, wages, and taxes are complex. Laws vary from state to state, and so does the minimum wage. Even before rising inflation, many states were on track to raise their minimum wage. To help companies stay abreast of the minimum wage changes, we’ve put together a list of states that have announced an increase to their minimum wage. Keep in mind that other states plan to boost their minimum wage later in 2023.
