Understanding the Form 1099 reporting and backup withholding requirements has become critical in light of the two most recent reports from the Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration (TIGTA), whose audits discovered several billions of dollars in backup withholding failures. In response to these reports, the IRS has announced backup withholding compliance initiatives. This session addresses IRS Form 1099 reporting and backup withholding requirements with a detailed review of Form W-9 and overview of Form 1042-S foreign reporting requirements.
