As a result of COVID, employees have fled their traditional workplaces, individuals are rethinking where they want to live, and employers have started rethinking their office-based workplace models. All of these changes impact a state’s authority to impose tax on an individual’s income and to require a company to withhold tax. This webinar examines state rules for taxing nonresidents and how those rules have changed due to the pandemic. We examine unique rules, like the convenience rule, and state-specific rules for taxing deferred compensation, and how these rules can lead to double taxation. We will also look at new and existing guidance regarding an employer’s obligation to withhold state taxes on an employee’s compensation.
