Taxing Gifts, Awards and Other Fringe Benefits
Companies are providing more fringe benefits to employees than ever before, which increases company costs but raises employee morale. Because of this the IRS has more to say on which Fringe Benefits are taxable and which are not. The IRS puts a lot of regulation around how the fringe benefit is given for non-taxable fringe benefits. This program will provide guidance on how you can determine when a benefit becomes taxable.
