The Essentials of Third Party Sick Pay: What Payroll Must Know to Tax and Report Correctly

Third party sick pay is a common benefit offered by many employers nationwide. But handling it in the payroll department can be a very difficult challenge. There are many issues that must be clarified in order to determine the taxation and reporting requirements under the Internal Revenue Code. For example, is the insurance company being used the employer’s agent or not the employer’s agent? Who is depositing the FICA taxes deducted from the employee’s payment and who is depositing the matching employer FICA taxes? Is the payment even subject to FICA taxes?

This webinar discusses the proper taxation and reporting of the fringe benefit known as third party sick pay. It discusses what is and is not third party sick pay, how the taxation is affected by the status of the provider (is or is not the employer’s agent), when this type of payment is taxable and/or reportable and who is responsible for this taxation and reporting.
