New Year....New W4....New stress! :(

Now that the dust of year end is settling, the W4 questions are coming in droves from employees and even payroll professionals as we all start to really dig into this new form and the calculations within it and the new tables.  You don't want to miss our February meeting where we welcome Howard Goldman, CPP who will take us behind the new fields on the form and look at how the new tax withholding amounts are calculated based on how the form is completed. There will also be opportunity to ask your W-4 questions to Howard and also your peers as we encourage attendees to share their experiences with the rollout and transition to the new form.

Howard is a long time member of the Detroit Chapter of the APA, serves on their board as Treasurer and is the Payroll Director at Illich Holdings, Inc.  He has over 20 years of payroll experience, and also has presented at many APA functions including our own Michigan Statewide Payroll Conference.

And with all the New Year changes, we might as well throw another one in there....a change to our meeting location!  Our amazing Chapter has continued to grow over the years and while Railside has been amazing to our chapter we sometimes are bursting at the seams.  We are adding the below venue to our meeting location listing, and you will see many meetings this year held at this new location.  We are very excited about the change!  FireRock Grille/Stonewater Banquet Room is a beautiful facility that is easy to get to with plenty of parking and room for all of us to meet and network!  It is only a couple of miles east of Railside.  Please note the address below:

FireRock Grille/Stonewater CC - FireRock Grille restaurant is attached to the banquet rooms.  The restaurant is on the south end of the building and the Banquet rooms are on the north end.  There is a easy to find set of doors that say Banquet, and there we are!  Come check out our new digs, network with your fellow members and help curb some anxiety over the new forms.
