On-Demand Webinar: TIN Compliance Essentials: Tax Regulations and Required Procedures for Soliciting and Validating SSNs and EINs, and Handling IRS B-Notices and Penalty Notices


The initial correct setup of vendors and other payees is the anchor for tax regulatory compliance.  Later, correct execution of all IRS B-Notice procedures keeps your organization steady in its required due diligence. And if the IRS issues proposed penalty Notice 972CG for Form 1099 reporting errors, your defense is documentation of the previous due diligence and regulatory compliance activities.  Essentials include:

  • Do your internal procedures for setting up vendors and other payees include all required steps for “TIN solicitation” – the process of obtaining tax identification numbers according to IRS rules including up to three attempts for reportable payees?
  • Are you using available resources to validate whether a tax ID number matches your 1099 reportable payee?
  • Are you Backup Withholding at the NEW 24% rate from certain payments when required by tax regulations?
  • Is your organization alert for receipt and correct processing of B Notices (CP 2100/2100A) sent by the IRS in the Spring and Fall every year?
  • Do you fully carry out and document the required IRS procedures for B Notices?
  • Are you prepared to respond to IRS proposed penalty notices (972CG) using your documented TIN solicitation, B Notice and Backup Withholding history?

Learning objectives for this program:

  • Solicit tax identification numbers from payees as required by tax regulations 
  • Apply Backup Withholding to certain payments as required by tax regulations
