Why should you attend?

The IRS is actively targeting enforcement measures on accounts payable operations. Penalties for non-compliance are now indexed and increase each year. It is more important than ever that 1099 Forms be prepared correctly, filed, and furnished timely, and that filers perform due diligence procedures to avoid or mitigate penalties.

In order to stay compliant, practitioners must know which form to use to report specific transactions, when forms must be filed or furnished to recipients in order to be on-time, which information to include and how to make sure it is accurate, how and when to make corrections, how to avoid or mitigate errors, whether a particular payee is subject to backup withholding, or transaction reporting, and the due diligence procedures that shield an issuer from penalties even when the forms contain incorrect information.
