What you need to know about gift cards

Roper St. Francis Healthcare recognizes that employee gifts are an effective way to recognize and reward employees for their accomplishments and contributions.

However, the value of these items are generally considered as taxable “wages” and subject to the same reporting and withholding requirements as regular wages unless a specific exemption applies. Therefore, as outlined in policy 7500-03-21, RSFH restricts the use of taxable (nonexempt) gifts, awards, and prizes to only RSFH-approved recognition programs.

Gift cards and certificates are generally considered cash equivalents and therefore taxable compensation unless they are for a specific product or service with no specific dollar amount loaded on the card (even if the face of the card or certificate doesn’t show a specific dollar amount). Cash equivalent gift cards are taxable even if they are only for $1 (example: $10 gift card to Target). Cash equivalent gifts should be avoided. Only cards and certificates that are good for a specific product or service can be considered non-taxable. Some examples of items that would not be considered taxable include movie passes good for one free admission, a certificate for a half hour massage, a pass for a free admission to the aquarium, etc.

Please note that in all of the examples above, no specific dollar amount can be loaded on the card or displayed on the card/certificate. Generally, even tangible gift items (gift baskets, etc.) and certificates for specific goods or services are taxable if the value exceeds $100. Also, the frequency at which recognition awards and gifts can be given to an employee must be limited and tied to recognition for completion of specific tasks, a job well done, etc. These types of gifts should not be given routinely as a form of compensation, or the gifts (no matter how small) could be deemed taxable by the IRS.

If the employee recognition award/gift is considered a taxable gift, then the gift is also considered compensation, and can only be approved by HR. Accounts Payable will not reimburse for taxable gifts unless approved by HR.
