TIN Matching, B Notices and Backup Withholding: Best Practices for Form 1099 Compliance

OVERVIEW

Issuers of 1099 Forms can adopt best practices and procedures that streamline the year end process and provide assurance that 1099s are correct, at least so far as vendor names and TINs are concerned. While certain errors in reporting dollar amounts are considered “inconsequential” under new de minimis error rules, errors in the payee name or TIN are never considered inconsequential and can result in penalties.

Best practices to avoid errors and penalties include TIN solicitation, TIN verification, timely and appropriate response to IRS notices including issuing and follow up on B-Notices to payees, and procedures to implement and discontinue backup withholding as required.

The webinar will discuss the solicitation process including solicitation using and analyzing Form W-9, annual solicitations, backup withholding B-notice and solicitations in response to IRS notices, and what to do when the vendor does not provide a TIN or provides an incorrect TIN.

It will cover how to register to use the IRS TIN verification service, how the IRS TIN matching system matches names and numbers and how this can help in preparing submissions to prevent false positive or negative responses from the system. It will cover how to submit TINs for verification and what to do when the system indicates a mismatch between the name and number of the vendor.

Procedures related to IRS notification of a name number mismatch or propose penalties for incorrect information returns are also covered including procedures the payer must follow in issuing B-Notices to payees.

The session will discuss establishment of procedures for proper administration of federal backup withholding.

WHY SHOULD YOU ATTEND

Year end is a busy time for Accounts Payable. With the acceleration of the due date for certain 1099 Forms and the increased penalties, it is more important than ever to prepare information returns correctly and file them on time. Preparation well in advance of the filing season is critical.

Establishment and implementation of procedures that provide for TIN solicitation, TIN verification, response to IRS notices and 1099backup withholding are keys to efficient processing, avoiding errors or missing information, and establishing reasonable cause for penalty avoidance when errors occur.

This webinar discusses how to establish procedures and best practices, including name/TIN verification, that avoid situations that can lead to penalties or, when such situations occur, establish the reasonable cause defense that allows you to avoid the penalty.

AREAS COVERED

  • Reminders, backup withholding rate 2019 and what’s new
  • IRS TIN matching system
  • Penalties

This process provides an easy way to consistently develop and present your observations. The components in this process include all the information you will need to inform and persuade.

Developing this process can be an important tool for completing and reporting observations in a timely and comprehensive way. It allows you to present those findings to your reader in a logical, complete, and objective manner and, thus, enhances the chances of the client’s buy-in and their agreement to your recommendations.

This process can also serve as a basis for review by supervisors and managers. It is supported by your work papers and gives complete and clear details of your analysis and the basis for your findings.
