This seminar covers the complexity in the handling and compliance with tax levies and creditor garnishments by the payroll department. Priorities between conflicting entities as well as federal and state compliance requirements are highlighted as well as tips for reducing processing time and costs.

Why you should attend: Tax Levies and Creditor Garnishments can generate some of the most stressful and emotional situations encountered in payroll.  Penalties for violations of compliance rules can be extremely costly. And incorrectly managing the conflicting interests of the parties involved can increase confusion and lead to serious financial and personal consequences.

These situations are extremely common in today's payroll functions and those responsible for the task need to be prepared!  Knowing proper procedures, regulations and priorities required by the numerous federal and state agencies governing these garnishments can help to reduce or eliminate the emotional and financial toll. Understanding what you must, can and cannot do when handling garnishments can also help you effectively communicate what is and is not required or allowable within your company's responsibilities and actions with all parties involved.

The reality is that all of the people and entities involved in these situations expect action from the payroll department.  And it often falls to the payroll department to catch and correct any errors that have been made by anyone along the way.  By ensuring that you have the right knowledge, you can have the confidence to handle Tax Levies and Creditor Garnishments correctly and efficiently!
