Continued Remote Working May Result In Unintended State Tax Consequences For Employers
Many employees are now at the one-year mark of working from home. As society returns to “normal,” employers should evaluate the potential tax consequences of permitting or requiring employees who live in other states to work from home. States are considering whether a return to “normal work” should also mean a return to “normal” nexus and other taxation rules.
The main issues arise when an employee is a resident of one state while the employer’s physical location is in another. This has potential ramifications for income tax withholding; income, sales, and use taxes; and unemployment insurance, which Jeff Schaffart and Nick Bjornson further detail in the article linked below.
