The average cost of a Notice of Proposed Penalty is estimated at US $150,000 including the penalty itself and the added costs for consultants, personnel, remediation of legacy records, etc. Compliance is far less expensive than the alternative.

  • Are you in compliance with the regulations surrounding data collection, backup withholding and information reporting?
  • How do you determine whether you can accept a W-9 from someone or if you must request a W-8 instead?
  • What if you send them a 1099 when you should have sent them a Form 1042-S?
  • How will you deal with an IRS demand for the backup withholding you failed to deduct from a Nonresident Alien’s (NRA’s) payments?

This seminar will focus on addressing these issues and many more compliance and regulatory issues pertaining to IRS forms 1099 and 1042-S. It will also address compliance with Title 26, CFR 1402(b) & (c), employee v. independent contractor distinction, and 1441 (withholding of tax on nonresident aliens and foreign corporations) mandates.

In this two day workshop, participants will learn how to identify independent contractors and non-resident aliens. We will analyze case studies to:

Topic Background:

For years the IRS has struggled with independent contractors and tax collection. In assessing opportunities to close the tax gap (taxes due but not reported or paid), one of the greatest opportunities comes from expanding information reporting on taxpayers by payers – the 1099. Collecting the tax due from NRAs working in the US is a Tier 1 audit issue. This tax burden is minimized when companies making payments to NRAs for dependent and independent personal services properly withhold on these payments. This time consuming reporting obligation can be streamlined in a number of ways.

The IRS has placed the burden on businesses, non-profits and not-for-profits as well as all levels of government to report information about taxable payments they make to their account holders, vendors and customers. In order to more accurately match our information reporting to taxpayer’s tax returns they have introduced an ‘e-services’ portal to help us ensure the names and tax identification numbers provided to us by our payees match their records (TIN Matching System). When used properly, this system can reduce the risk of Warning Letters (CP-2100s/B-Notices) and penalty notices (972-CGs) from the IRS. Every year the IRS sends out millions of CP2100 Notices identifying incorrect names/TINS on 1099s. These letters have a very short deadline for responding.

Local Attractions of Chicago, IL

Windy

Windy

One of the more breathtaking scenes on the lake is this tall ship approaching the docks at Navy Pier. The 148-foot four-masted schooner (and its new sister ship, the Windy II ) sets sail for 90-minute cruises two to five times a day, both day and evening. (Because the boats are sometimes booked by groups, the schedule changes each week; call first to confirm sailing times). The boats are at the whims of the wind, so every cruise charts a different course. Passengers are welcome to help raise and trim the sails and occasionally take turns at the ship's helm (with the captain standing close by). The boats are not accessible for people with disabilities.

Adler Planetarium and Astronomy Museum

Adler Planetarium and Astronomy Museum

The building may be historic (it was the first planetarium in the Western Hemisphere), but some of the attractions here will captivate the most jaded video-game addict.
Your first stop should be the modern Sky Pavilion, where the don't-miss experience is the StarRider Theater. Settle down under the massive dome, and you'll take a half-hour interactive virtual-reality trip through the Milky Way and into deep space, featuring a computer-generated 3-D-graphics projection system and controls in the armrest of each seat. Six high-resolution video projectors form a seamless image above your head -- you'll feel as if you're literally floating in space. If you're looking for more entertainment, the Sky Theater shows movies with an astronomical bent; recent shows have included Secrets of Saturn and Mars Now!

Arlington International Racecourse

Arlington International Racecourse

With its gleaming-white, palatial, six-story grandstand and lush gardens, this racecourse is one of the most beautiful showcases for thoroughbred horse racing in the world. Its storied history stretches back to 1927, and such equine stars as Citation, Secretariat, and Cigar have graced the track. The annual Arlington Million (the sport's first million-dollar race, held in mid-Aug) attracts top jockeys, trainers, and horses and is part of the World Series Racing Championship, which includes the Breeders Cup races. Arlington's race days are thrilling to behold, with all of racing's time-honored pageantry on display -- from the bugler in traditional dress to the parade of jockeys.

Art Institute of Chicago

Art Institute of Chicago

You can't -- and shouldn't -- miss the Art Institute. (You really have no excuse, since it's conveniently located right on Michigan Ave. in the heart of downtown.) No matter what medium or century interests you, the Art Institute has something in its collection to fit the bill. Japanese ukiyo-e prints, ancient Egyptian bronzes, Greek vases, 19th-century British photography, masterpieces by most of the greatest names in 20th-century sculpture, and modern American textiles are just some of the works on display, but for a general overview of the museum's collection, take the free "Highlights of the Art Institute" tour Saturday and Sunday.

Auditorium Building and Theatre

Auditorium Building and Theatre

A truly grand theater with historic-landmark status, the Auditorium gives visitors a taste of late-19th-century Chicago opulence. Because it's still a working theater -- not a museum -- it's not always open to the public during the day; to make sure you'll get in, schedule a guided tour, which are offered on Mondays at 10am and noon.
Designed and built in 1889 by Louis Sullivan and Dankmar Adler, the 4,000-seat Auditorium was a wonder of the world: the heaviest (110,000 tons) and most massive modern edifice on earth, the most fireproof building ever constructed, and the tallest building in Chicago. It was also the first large-scale building to be lit by electricity, and its theater was the first in the country to install air-conditioning. Originally the home of the Chicago Opera Company, Sullivan and Adler's masterpiece is defined by powerful arches lit by thousands of bulbs and features Sullivan's trademark ornamentation -- in this case, elaborate golden stenciling and gold plaster medallions. It's equally renowned for otherworldly acoustics and unobstructed sightlines.
