Please come join us as we proudly welcome back Luanne Brown, CPP who will be presenting on Taxable and Non Taxable Fringe Benefits.  With the new Tax Cuts and Jobs Act of 2017, there are some big changes to how Fringe Benefits are handle for payroll purposes...most importantly their tax treatment.  Luanne will be discussing with us the following:

 - What's new with tax reform

 - What we still need guidance on for new tax reform regulations

 - What stayed the same (taxable/non taxable fringes and how to handle)

 - What do we do when we do not have support from Management

 - Will the IRS look at fringe benefits if we are audited?


Luanne is currently the Director of Payroll Services at Grand Valley State University. She has been in the Payroll Profession for over 20 years.  Not only is she our former WMAPA Chapter President, but also recently became Director of the Board of Directors for the American Payroll Association where she has been actively involved for many years.


I hope you will join us as we learn about Fringe Benefits and how the new tax law will impact them....and us!!


See you there!!
