Fringe Benefits and Auto Inclusion Calculations

A fringe benefit is a form of pay for the performance of services.  For example, you provide an employee with a fringe benefit when you allow the employee to use a business vehicle to commute to and from work.  Employers are required to include the value of certain fringe benefits as income on an employee’s Form W-2 (Wage and Tax Statement).

The fringe benefit income inclusion items may be aggregated with the employee’s salary and included in one Form W-2, or may be included in a separate Form W-2.  The fringe benefit income inclusion amount is subject to payroll withholdings and the amount must be included in a payroll processed prior to the end of the year.

Please refer to the Resources/Worksheets page of our website for the 2022 Fringe Benefit Taxation Summary for further information on Fringe Benefits.  This worksheet, Auto Inclusion and Fringe Benefit Template, should be used to gather the information for SSF to do the Auto Inclusion Calculation if assistance is needed.

Fringe Benefits and Auto Inclusions Deadlines

  • Information is due to SSF three weeks before you process your final payroll in order to be included with the final payroll of 2022, but no later than December 15, 2022.
