Nervously awaiting your CP2100 Report from the IRS?
Collecting and organizing all the needed documentation to show where you’ve mailed W-9s and corrected your 1099s, all while trying to stay current with the ever-changing rules and regulations can be extremely stressful – especially with potential IRS fines hanging over your head.
Businesses receive a form called CP-2100 from the IRS when there's a mismatch between what the business put on a Form 1099 for a contractor's social security number, versus what's in the IRS's database for the contractor's social security number.
If a payer receives a CP2100 notice indicating a missing or incorrect payee TIN, they could potentially be responsible for backup withholding. Mandated by the IRS under Internal Revenue Code §3406, backup withholding rules require payers to withhold 28% of payments made to these payees, which is remitted to the IRS via Form 945, Annual Return of Withheld Federal Income Tax.
When a business receives a CP-2100 notice, it must send out what's called a "B Notice" to the contractor, to request corrected information.
Effectively handling CP-2100 letters and sending out B Notices helps a business stay in compliance and avoid penalties.
This CPE webinar will cover how to deal with CP-2100 letters, and also provide tips on avoiding these letters.
Following are the major topics covered in this Tax CE webinar:
