Payroll Deferral Considerations For School Districts
Christopher T. Schmidt | 09.02.20
In light of President Trump’s Executive Order allowing certain payroll tax deferrals and the recent IRS guidance on that issue, a number of employers, including school districts, have been getting questions from their employees about whether they can or should defer their taxes and some districts have been getting information from third party payroll advisors instructing them how to accomplish this deferral. However, due to a significant number of questions which remain to be answered, and potential risk for employers who allow deferral, we are suggesting districts may wish to take a close look at the issues before they allow their employees to defer any tax obligation. The deferral program is voluntary for employers to participate.
