Tax Equalization: Important Topics from both the Company and Employee Perspectives!
You are invited to the May education program of the Houston International HR Roundtable. Our speaker will be Stephen Youngblood of Deloitte Tax LLP’s Global Employee Services. The tax impact of an international assignment can be significant to both the employer and the employee. Many companies currently exercise a tax equalization strategy. We will discuss the importance of tax equalization to both the company and the employee. We will also cover how tax equalization is calculated, why the employee may owe the company money and how to best keep the company out of a collection position.
This will be a great forum to discuss how tax equalization assists global mobility managers in keeping assignments tax neutral so companies can better manage employee deployments to desired countries instead of negotiating deployments based on employee perceived benefits.
Please note that we are meeting on “Thursday” this month. We look forward to a great program. Please bring yourself, a friend, and your questions on tax equalization.
