Remote work and working from home offices, natural disasters, complexities around multistate reporting, and awards to employees under a qualified plan or nonqualified plan, are just some of the issues that have dominated employment tax and payroll professionals’ attention in 2022 – and will continue to do so into 2023.  That is in addition to the typical year-end and preparation-for-the-new-year responsibilities and obligations employers face this time of year.

The Employment Tax Group with KPMG LLP (U.S.) has published an article on payroll year-end topics, including remote worker wage and taxation sourcing, prior-year legislation, and multistate wage allocations, as well as accounting for fringe benefits, gifts, prizes, and awards.

This article aims to discuss the array of year-end matters that occupy the time and attention of employment tax and payroll professionals.

Many employers will have been working through their internal departments and/or with employment tax and payroll administration services providers to tick the various boxes to help ensure their compliance on a timely basis.

Getting the year-end processes and obligations right is critical to efficient and well-organized administration and timely reporting and document issuance.
