What Employers Need to Know About Withholding

What Employers Need to Know About Withholding

To employees, payroll may seem pretty straightforward. You work—clocking in and out if necessary—then you get paid. Sure, they notice how much was taken out for taxes and benefits, but employees often have no idea what it takes to arrive at those numbers on their pay stub. HR pros, on the other hand, know how complicated payroll can get, especially when it comes to withholding taxes.
