Determine whether it should have reported the official's reimbursements as a taxable fringe benefit and, if so, amend any relevant tax documents.
Public Health reported that in March 2017 it completed and sent to the State Controller's Office (SCO) the applicable forms to report the official's taxable fringe benefits. It stated that the SCO will process the forms and generate corrected W-2 forms for the official to report additional taxable income for the last three years that can still be amended.
Public Health reported that it determined that the official's travel reimbursements should have been reported as taxable fringe benefits and that it will issue or amend the appropriate tax documents.
Public Health reported that it requested a review on the fringe benefit determination and reporting requirements, and it anticipates a response in October 2016.
