About This Course:
Employee expense reimbursements are subject to IRS guidelines and can be disallowed as expenses - and even considered compensation to those employees - if not handled correctly.

Further, if employee expense reimbursements do not meet IRS guidelines, they may be disallowed as expenses and considered compensation to those employees, leaving your organization responsible for the associated payroll taxes - plus any penalties.

This training session will help you to recognize - and accurately report - employee expense reimbursements.
