The IRS is auditing employers more and more each day and an area of most non-compliance. Most non-compliance occurs in regard to handling Fringe Benefits. Plus employers are offering more Fringe benefits versus cash compensation because it is a cost savings to employers. Complying with the Internal Revenue Tax Code requirements and federal regulations for fringe benefits such as relocation, meals, lodging, educational assistance, health insurance, transportation, and third-party sick pay can be complicated.  

Companies are providing more fringe benefits to employers more than ever before, thus reduces company cost but raises employee morale. Because of this, the IRS has more to say on what Fringe Benefits are taxable and what are not. The IRS for non-taxable fringe benefits puts a lot of regulation around how the fringe benefit is given and when that also determines if a thought non- taxable item may end up being taxable.

All fringe benefits must be handled correctly, under the latest rules, to minimize the chance for penalties and interest to be levied against your company or for triggering larger and more intrusive governmental audits
