This information-packed program will show you how to spot trouble areas in the year-end 1099 preparation process, capture all reportable payment items for 2017 Form 1099-MISC reporting to the IRS, and avoid very costly errors in complying with the IRS Form 1099 tax reporting rules.
We will cover a 10-point Year-end Checklist to help guide your organization minimize confusion or accidental errors. The Checklist will help you navigate through hot issues including:

- How to report if there are multiple payees or payment assigned to a different payee
- TIN solicitation regulatory requirements
- Checking for backup withholding and Form 945 filing requirements
- Correct use of the various boxes on Form 1099-MISC – what qualifies as box 1 “rent”? – how to distinguish between box 3 “other” and box 7 “nonemployee compensation? – how to identify whether payments to attorneys or law firms belong in box 7 or box 14?
- What errors, changes and new information require you to file a “Corrected” Form 1099 to the IRS?
- When participating in the IRS Combined Federal/State Reporting Program satisfies state 1099-MISC requirements – and when it doesn’t.
