When an employer offers employee benefits, there are requirements to tax certain benefits. While most employers may be familiar with using a cafeteria plan for employees to pay for health insurance on a pre-tax basis, there are taxation rules that apply to voluntary plans, life insurance coverage exceeding a certain amount, long-term disability or short-term disability, fringe benefits, and wellness rewards.

This webinar will:

  • Review basic employment tax laws that apply to health and welfare benefits
  • Describe general taxation rules that apply to fringe benefits
  • Describe the taxation rules that apply to voluntary plans, including fixed indemnity plans
  • Discuss the taxation of employer-provided group term life insurance coverage over $50,000
  • Discuss the pros and cons of paying premiums pre-tax or post-tax for long-term or short-term disability
  • Discuss the taxation of wellness program rewards
  • Discuss the potential consequences of evading employment taxes
  • Describe best practices when offering voluntary plans, fringe benefits, and wellness rewards
