The Form 1042-S & W-8 Update –Complying with IRS Information Reporting for Nonresident Aliens

Duration: 90 Minutes
Do you have a plan to deal with IRS demands for backup withholding if you failed to deduct from payments to Nonresident Aliens' (NRAs)? The IRS is working hard to reduce the delinquent tax burden. They know companies are becoming relatively compliant with 1099 reporting, but they also understand that companies and their advisors are less sure when it comes to identifying and performing backup withholding on NRAs. Collecting the tax due from NRAs working in the U.S. is an IRS Tier 1 audit issue. This tax burden is minimized when companies making payments to NRAs for both dependent and independent personal services properly withhold on these payments.
