Course Description

The IRS is working hard to reduce the delinquent tax burden. Over the years, companies are becoming relatively compliant with 1099 reporting. However the fact is that companies and their advisors are less sure when it comes to identifying and performing backup withholding NRAs. 

One such issue is not having a plan to deal with IRS demands for backup withholding if companies failed to deduct from payments to Nonresident Aliens' (NRAs). Collecting the tax due from NRAs working in the US is an IRS Tier 1 audit issue. This tax burden in minimized when companies making payments to NRAs for both dependent and independent personal services properly withhold on these payments. 

Key benefits of webinar:

  • Obtain the knowledge necessary to identify your NRA payees 
  • Bring your company into compliance with the 30% backup withholding requirements 
  • Develop an effective plan to move your company, institution or clients toward complete regulatory compliance, efficiency improvements, standardized processes and adequate documentation
  • Ensure NRAs are properly handled according to IRS and tax treaty regulations. You will 
  • Use the treaties and best practices to confirm exemption claims made by your NRAs with the IRS.

This course is essential for all professionals in industry, NGO’s, schools, public practice and government who are responsible for filing or overseeing information reporting compliance and related issues.
