In this webinar, attendees will learn the difference between regular Pay, Gross Pay, and Taxable Gross, all of which may be different numbers. This can prepare the Payroll team to respond to questions from employees who don’t understand their Pay Checks. The webinar will discuss methods to ensure that all possibilities are included when calculating pay, if you use a vendor service or SAAS to process your payroll. We’ll also discuss how to verify that the vendor has encompassed all your variations in their calculations. It’s always better to be safe than sorry, so ensure that you can verify each employee’s pay-to-gross calculation.


  • Blended rates
  • Taxable vs salary/hours
  • Exclusions from taxable
  • State differences in taxable calculations
  • Additions to and subtractions from rate
  • Taxable items not subject to withholding

  • Do you pay hourly employees with separate hourly rates for different jobs?
  • Do you pay employees in a state that allows pre-tax deductions? Or are you in a state that doesn’t allow prep-tax deductions?
  • This webinar will help you respond to the employee who can’t understand why his/her rate is $1,000 per pay period, and the paystub says, “Taxable Gross=$920.00”.
  • Plowing through the many rules regarding taxable, non-taxable, and pre-tax deductions and earnings is challenging. We’ll help you calculate base to gross wages for multiple scenarios.

  • Do you know if any of your benefit plans are pretax? If you are in multiple states, are you aware of how each state regards Section 125 or 401k plans?
  • Do you understand what is taxable and what is also not subject to withholding?
  • Do your benefits include life insurance and are you aware of how this may affect an employee’s taxable income?
  • What about an employer match for your 401k or 403b plan?
  • If your employees are paid hourly, do they receive the same hourly pay for all jobs, or are there shift differentials, multiple rates, or other additions and changes to the employee’s base rate?
  • This webinar can help you always pay these employees correctly. Even if you use a payroll vendor, always know how to calculate wages, in order to verify calculations are correct.
