Course Description

There may not be any major changes to the small business tax code in 2021, but there are some important things to keep in mind. In 2018, Congress passed major adjustments to business tax law, including a lower corporate tax rate, new rules for pass-through businesses and a tax break for some industries

Session 1 - IRS Form 1099 Reporting REQ. Including Updates On Form 1099-NEC (Latest 2021)

Any business – regardless of its structure (sole proprietor, corporation, etc.) that makes "reportable transactions" during the year is requires to issue 1099 to the recipient of income and to the IRS. Form 1099-MISC compliance is a surprisingly complicated compliance requirement for businesses and accountants. The requirements are always changing, and answers are seldom clear-cut. This course will de-mystify some of the tricky areas relating to Form 1099-MISC, such as when 1099 should be issued and whether a worker is a contractor or an employee. 

This Online Webinar includes the latest update on  Form 1099-NEC which is being Resurrected by IRS & it will be used to report payments made to independent contractors. 

In order to stay compliant, practitioners must know which form to use to report specific transactions, when forms must be filed or furnished to recipients in order to be on-time, which information to include and how to make sure it is accurate. 

This Online CPE Webinar covers following Key Topics: 

  • What constitutes a reportable transaction?
  • What are the rules regarding paying and IRS reporting on Independent Contractors?
  • How do we avoid the IRS CP-2100 (B-Notices)? What if our vendor/payee claims exemption; must we obtain a W-9 anyway? 
  • What are the best practices for handling our information reporting obligations?
  • How can we minimize risk of improper exemption claims by our payees and vendors? 
  • Different due diligence procedures that shield an issuer from penalties even when the forms contain incorrect information.

Session 2 - Form W-4 And Other Payroll Updates

On May 31, 2019, the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) released a draft of the 2020 W-4 form, and on December 5, 2019, released the final 2020 Form W-4, Employee’s Withholding Certificate that radically changes the way employee paychecks are calculated. Before changes, Form W-4 was a critical form that all companies have to obtain from employees and has had special processing requirements. The form includes major revisions, including several new input elements for federal income tax withholding calculations, which will require significant reprogramming of payroll systems.

This Online CPE Webinar will prepare the payroll professionals to understand the changes to Form W-4 for 2020 and to review the recently released draft of the 2020 W-4 Form. We will also discuss the IRS-specific laws around the processing of Form W-4 and how they should be handled will be discussed.

  • How to handle moving expenses?
  • Form 1099-NEC for reporting of independent contractors
  • 2020 IRS Draft Form 1099-MISC Review

This session will prepare your staff for this filing year, improve your employee reporting set-up and maintenance practices, and reduce your risk of complaints from the IRS.

The IRS recently released a new version of Form 941 for the second quarter of 2020. This revised form will account for COVID-19 related tax credits, including the employee retention credit (ERC) and tax credits under the Families First Coronavirus Response Act. We will cover the new Form 7200 for claiming advance payment of the tax credits, and how to reconcile on Form 941. The online CPE course will also review the ERC and FFCRA credits, as well as the ability to defer employer-side Social Security taxes. We will tie everything together with a case study that includes filling out forms.
