For years the IRS has struggled with the independent contractor and tax collection. In assessing opportunities to close the tax gap (taxes due but not reported or paid), one of the greatest opportunities comes from expanding the information reporting on taxpayers by payors – the 1099. This time consuming reporting obligation can be streamlined in a number of ways. Join us to learn more…

What are the rules regarding paying and IRS reporting on Independent Contractors? How do I avoid the IRS CP-2100 (B-Notices)? What if my vendor claims exemption; must I obtain a W-9 anyway? What are the best practices? How can I minimize risk of improper exemption claims by my vendors? Get the answers to these and related questions to reduce your risk of huge penalties from the IRS.
