More than two years since the enactment of the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act (TCJA), businesses continue to face challenges as the IRS and state taxing authorities grapple to interpret and incorporate its provisions.

One result of the TCJA is historic changes to the federal Form W-4 and related income tax withholding calculations set to take effect next year that will certainly have a ripple effect in many states throughout 2020 and beyond.

Adding to these challenges, some states and localities are focused on progressive reforms that extend greater protections and benefits to workers and the economically disadvantaged. The result has been a flurry of activity in the areas of state and local payroll taxes and business taxes tied to the workforce.

Join us to hear our team of Ernst & Young LLP professionals discuss the federal, state and local payroll/employment tax developments and trends that are shaping the goals and priorities of businesses as they close the year and prepare for 2020.

Topics include:

  • Changes to the 2020 federal Form W-4 and its impact on employers and employees
  • Changes in the federal overtime rules for salaried exempt employees and the employment tax considerations
  • Form W-2 reporting considerations for 2019
  • State developments in paid family and medical leave insurance and the employment tax challenges they raise
  • Other state and local payroll tax developments
  • State unemployment insurance cost outlook for 2019 and 2020
  • Federal, state and local taxability—myths, facts and leading practices
  • 2019 payroll year-end checklist
