As the Expo opened, a crowd gathered around the Workday-sponsored Learning Lounge took part in an animated discussion about taxation and mobile workforces.
Thomas M. Cryan Jr., Esq., with Littler Mendelson PC warned of a likely tightening of rules and regulations regarding taxes and employees who don’t work at the home office. He also said that in the future, states will become more aggressive about capturing corporate taxes in both the state where the company is based and the company where the employee lives.
Also, the government is likely to start tracking and taxing non-qualified deferred compensation, he said.
Becky Lindsay, CPP, Senior Manager of Compensation and Benefits at Amsted Industries Inc., a parent company for seven different manufacturing companies, found the discussion helpful.
“I thought it was very good,” she said. “Telecommuting and taxation are issues that are coming up more and more often.”
