Member Compliance Webinars

The IRS has stopped interpreting tax law over the phone. Where can you turn for reliable compliance updates? 

Any person who has responsibility for 1099 and 1042-S reporting is required to be up-to-date on all current regulations. The penalties and risks associated with noncompliance are onerous, and the burden is on the organization—not the IRS—to see that staff is educated about regulatory updates. Ignorance of the law leaves an organization exposed to costly penalties and legal fees.

Here's what our Members have to say: 

"Ms. Couch is awesome. So knowledgeable. Appreciate her passion for this stuff!"

"Marianne Couch always provides great information on both 1042 and 1099 reporting, and I learn something new each time." 

"The training was very well put-together. It covered a lot of material; however, it was presented in a clear and concise manner."
