As the economy picks up, employers need to find creative ways to attract new employees and retain their current employees. The most common way is through providing fringe benefits to their employees. These benefits can range from health care plans to the use of company cars. However, both the employer and the employees need to know the tax effects of offering and receiving these benefits.
