1 2013 Year End Payroll Processing With the end of another calendar year upon us, we would like to take this opportunity to THANK YOU for your continued business. The fourth quarter of the year is a busy time for all of us. Preparing for year end and prioritizing your tasks will help with a smooth transition into This packet provides you with some basic year end information which we hope you will find helpful. Please review this information with your HR Department/Accountant to help us ensure the accuracy of the documents we will prepare with regards to your payroll and W2s. The items included in this packet are listed below: Deadlines for submitting adjustments for 2013 Year End Checklist Common Year End Adjustments Information on submitting Bonus payrolls Verification of Employee Information for W-2s Year End Returns and W-2 Forms Year End Adjustment Request Forms Direct Mail of W2s or Year End CD Limits for 2014 for OASDI, Pension contributions and the Additional Medicare tax for 2014 Preparing for the 1 st Payroll of the ~2014 Holiday Schedule Page 1 of 10

2 Deadlines for Submitting Adjustments It may be necessary for your company to include additional wage/benefit/compensation information for It is very important for you to provide this information in a timely manner to AVOID tax penalties and/or additional costs for adjusting or amending tax returns. Be sure to process these adjustments with a regular payroll. If the adjustments are submitted after all payrolls have been processed for the year, the employer may be required to pay the employee s portion of Social Security and Medicare Taxes. 12/27/2013 Contact your Payroll Specialist to put your W2s on hold if you know you will have adjustments to process after 12/31/2013. Contact your Accountant and third party providers to request all employees information to be sent to you as soon as possible. 12/31/2013 To avoid tax penalties, this is the last day to submit adjustments or additional wage/benefit compensation information for Adjustments submitted after 3:00pm on this date will incur the normal payroll processing fees and handling fees due to the possibility of preparing amended returns and W2s. Third Party sick pay adjustments are due by this date to avoid late tax liabilities. 01/03/2014 Adjustments submitted after this date will cause the tax payments to be late. You will be responsible for all tax penalties and interest. 01/15/2014 According to Federal Regulations, Third Party Sick Pay Providers have until 01/15/2014 to supply you with your employees sick pay information. If you know you will have 3 rd party sick pay payments to enter for 2013, please let your Payroll Specialist know to put your Quarterlies and W2 s on Hold. You will be responsible for all penalties and interest that the IRS may access on your late tax payments. Adjustments submitted after this date will require a reopen fee, amended returns at a fee of $100 per return, normal payroll processing fees and W2 reprocessing fees. Page 2 of 10

3 Year End Check List There are many things to confirm, verify, check and audit on your payroll BEFORE running your last scheduled payroll of the calendar year. Here is a list of some of the key areas affecting your payroll at year end and should be considered carefully. Pre schedule any Bonus payroll runs and adjustments as soon as possible. Check with your HR Department/Accountant to determine if any taxable fringe benefits need to be submitted with a payroll or if any payments for (moving expenses, health club dues, tuition reimbursement etc.) were issued thru Accounts Payable. Check any terminated employees that are to receive taxable fringe benefits or adjustments. If they have not been previously entered thru an earlier payroll, you will need to gross up the dollar amount to cover the OASDI and Medicare portion. The Federal and State portion can be blocked. Your Payroll Specialist can assist you with this. Contact your Third Party Sick Pay provider to determine when the benefit amounts will be available to be processed either thru a scheduled payroll before 12/31/2013 or as a separate payroll adjustment. Remember, if these benefits are processed after the above date, you will incur additional payroll processing fees, possible amendment and reopen fees and W2 reprocessing fees. You will also be responsible for all tax penalties and interest for any late tax payments made after 01/03/2014. Verify that all manual checks have been processed thru payroll or any voids that need to be done. This will ensure the W2 issued is accurate. Review the W2/1099 Audit report on your employees for accurate W2 information. The SSA requires that all company and employee information that appears on the W2 forms be complete and accurate. W2 Retirement Plan Box: The SSA requires that an X appear in the Retirement Plan box of the W2 form for all employees who were active participants in a Qualified Pension Plan. Employees that had monies deducted thru payroll for any deferred compensation plan (401K, 403B, 457, Simple IRAs, etc.) or had pension match monies calculated thru payroll will have the Retirement Plan box AUTOMATICALLY checked. IF you have a Company Sponsored Pension Plan other than noted above, YOU must notify your Payroll Specialist with a list of qualified employees so she can check the Retirement Plan box on the W2 form. Remote Clients should mark the Pension Box directly thru the Payroll Software. This MUST be done by 12/31/2013. Contact your Payroll Specialist to assist you on where to mark the Pension Box on the employee s record Page 3 of 10

4 Common Year End Adjustments You may need to report additional wage information to be included in your employee s income and reported on their W-2. The items listed below are some of the most common items that may need to be reported. These items NEED to be included with a regular processed payroll so the employee taxes can be deducted from their pay check. Remember: If you do not process any fringe benefits/wage information with your live payroll, you will be responsible for paying the employee s portion of OASDI and Medicare. You should contact your HR Department/Accountant, tax attorney or plan administrator for clarification or assistance in computing the value to be reported. Personal Use of a Company provided vehicle Group Term Life insurance in excess of $50,000 Third Party Sick Pay Non-Qualified Moving Expenses reimbursements S Corporation accident/health premiums paid up to 2% or more for shareholder employees Employer paid education not related to their job Value of certain awards and prizes Non-accountable business expense reimbursements Country club and health club dues Allocated tips (For Restaurant clients) Imputed value of Domestic partner benefits coverage. Please contact your Payroll Specialist for assistance in running these adjustments. If you know you are not going to have your year-end adjustments by 12/31/2013, please have your Payroll Specialist put your payroll in a HOLD STATUS for processing W2s and tax returns. Bonus Payrolls Bonus payrolls should be scheduled in advance. Bonus payrolls must be processed at minimum, 2 days in advance of check date. Keep in mind, once you process a bonus payroll, the bonus amounts will SHOW on the employees regular check stub and be included in their year to date. If you don t want the employee to see the bonus amount on their regular check stub, you MUST process a separate bonus payroll AFTER you process your REGULAR payroll. Note** Depending upon the size of your Bonus payroll, we may contact you to wire the funds for the Direct Deposit and Tax monies, if you utilize those services. For your Bonus payroll, we need to know the following: Check Date Processing Date (we will require it to be at least two days prior to Check Date) Taxing the Bonus Check (Regular taxes or supplemental rates) What deductions will be taken (None, 401K, garnishments etc.) Direct Deposit or Live Checks.

5 Verification of W2/1099 Edit Report: Please review the W2/1099 Edit report regarding your employees information to ensure accurate W2s are generated for each of your employees. This report is included with the last payroll scheduled to be processed in November. Please have all changes back to Pro Data Payroll by December 20 th Remote Clients should make corrections to their employees thru the Payroll Software directly. Year End Returns and W2s Pro Data Payroll will start to process your 2013 Quarterlies and W2s on 12/31/13. If you know you will have any adjustments to payroll but won t have them timely, please contact your Payroll Specialist to put your payroll on a HOLD STATUS for W2 and tax return processing. The last day your W2 processing can remain on a HOLD STATUS is January 15, 2014, before incurring additional fees. Direct Mail of W2s and/or a Year End CD Make your year-end less stressful and more convenient by utilizing our Direct Mailing of W2s to your employees home addresses.
