Fringe Benefit Taxation, Reporting & Withholding - IRS Updates for 2024


Companies are providing more fringe benefits to employers more than ever before, thus reduces company cost but raises employee morale. Because of the IRS has more to say on what Fringe Benefits are taxable and what are not. The IRS for non-taxable fringe benefits puts a lot of regulation around how the fringe benefit is given and when that also determines if a thought non-taxable item may end up being taxable.

As a payroll professional you must know cold—no guessing—when a fringe benefit is taxable and when it is not, when it is reportable and when it is not. Payroll must know when providing a fringe benefit must be considered wages or if it is “tax free”.  What if the employee pays some of the cost of a fringe benefit? How does that affect taxing and reporting? Are there dollar limits? Does it become taxable after a certain amount? And after you have mastered all the facts along comes a new tax bill by Congress that can change everything you just learned when it comes to taxing fringe benefits.

All fringe benefits must be handled correctly, under the latest rules, to minimize the chance for penalties and interest to be levied against your company or for triggering larger and more intrusive governmental audits.
