Are you struggling with the revised laws that dictate how to correctly complete Form 1099-MISC? Are you acquainted with the W-9 process and specific rules regarding disregarded entities? Is the responsible party in your organization responsible for responding to IRS B-Notices aware of the timeline and procedure to respond to avoid further penalties?

Learn the proper procedure to issue a correct 1099-MISC, collect the pertinent information including payee information, information about proper boxes to report payments and know how to respond to an IRS B-Notice.
