TIN Matching, IRS B-Notices, and 972CGs Penalties

TIN Matching helps the taxpayer determine whether the payee TIN/name combination written on their Form W-9, matches the TIN/name combination entered in IRS tax filing records, before filing.

This training is for anyone or any organization dealing with 1099-INT, 1099-PATR, 1099-B, 199-DIV, 1099-MISC, 1099-K, or 1099-OID. We will discuss the best practices to eliminate IRS 1099 error notices.

You will discover the power of the TIN Matching system, and what happens if you enter incorrect information. We will explain the smartest way to register and use the two-step verification process for TIN matching.

This webinar will provide guidance on how to reply to the CP-2100 notices. We'll discuss the tricks to avoid the fines & penalties due to the non-compliance with the B-Notice requirements.

You will learn to differentiate between 1st and 2nd B-Notice and how the required vendor responses are different. You will be well-prepared to institute and stop Backup Withholding whenever required.

Reduce The Error Rate in TIN Validation

For many years, 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 vendors and customers.

To more accurately match your information reporting to taxpayer’s returns, they have introduced an “e-services” portal to help you ensure the payee names and tax identification numbers provided to us by your payees match the IRS records. When used properly, this system can reduce the risk of warning letters (CP-2100s/B-Notices), backup withholding, and penalty notices (972-CGs) from the IRS.
