Factors Under Review In An Employment Tax Audit

Businesses that employ seasonal labor, immigrant workers and contract workers are more susceptible to employment tax difficulties. Among the problems that can be identified as violations in an employment tax audit are:

  • Improper classifications of employees as contractor, or as exempt rather than nonexempt
  • Improper documentation of foreign workers (failing to obtain valid identification or a valid Social Security number)
  • Failure to consider fringe benefits and incentive programs as taxable income
  • Failure to properly tax or report officer compensation
  • Improper reporting of reimbursed expenses
  • Failure to collect and remit payroll tax
  • Failure to pay employment tax
  • Failure to report employment taxes (non-filers)
