Did you know that you could Potentially Have Tax and Workers' Comp Liability If you are using a Professional Employer Organization?

  • Do you know your PEO’s owner? You need to at least take him to lunch; after all, you are trusting him to handle your taxes and insurance payments.
  • Are you aware that you could be liable for payroll taxes that you have already paid your PEO per IRS code 5.1.24.1.1?
  • Does your PEO participate in the Voluntary Certification Program for Professional Employer Organizations? If not, why not?
  • Did you get a vote in the choice of your Workers’ Comp provider, or did your PEO do that for you?
