Taxation Error - Partners Enrolled in AT&T Medical Coverage
Posted On: Jun 23, 2021
Our eligibility vendor, Alight, has identified an issue regarding the amount considered to be taxable income for employees with a partner or their dependent enrolled in their AT&T medical coverage option. The error led to an over-calculation of the amount subject to taxation that is reported to Payroll, in accordance with Federal, state and local income tax laws. Alight has identified 109 employees impacted in the SE region with a partner enrolled in medical coverage for any period of time in 2021. AT&T has instructed Alight to recalculate and report a corrected year-to-date taxable income amount to AT&T Payroll. The adjusted year-to-date taxable income amount will appear on the first paycheck in July.
