Why risk financial liability to your organization for failure to certify, identify, withhold and file returns?

New regulations significantly impact filers beginning this year-end and continue in the years to come.

New legislation passed into law:

  • Payers are required to report services payments made to corporations – tax year 2012 – currently up for repeal
  • Payers are required to report payments issued to any entity for goods and services. – currently up for repeal
  • Increased Penalty Structure – Significant increases to assessed penalties – double or more and raising the cap from $250,000 up to $1,500,000. Any returns filed January 1, 2011 and after are subject to the increased penalties.
  • TIPRA 2005 – All government agencies (with annual overall budgets of $100 million) will be required to withhold 3% federal tax on all payments for goods (materials) and services, for any payments issued after December 31, 2011 (TIPRA 2005). This law applies to all federal, state and local agencies.
  • IRC 6050W – Information returns, TIN Certification and Backup Withholding for merchant card reimbursements. Requires institutions that reimburse merchants in settlement of reportable card transactions beginning January 1, 2011 to file information returns with the Internal Revenue Service showing the grand total of reimbursements issued for transactions related to goods and services. The entity reimbursing the merchant for such transaction is responsible to obtain the correct Tax ID and Name of the Merchant and apply backup withholding of 28% federal tax to those merchants who fail to provide the correct information.
US Code § 6672: Failure to collect and pay over tax, or attempt to evade or defeat tax

Any organization that intentionally does not comply with the requirements to properly document U.S. or foreign payees, implement withholding when required or report could face criminal proceedings. In a criminal case, the officers of the company can be held personally financially liable for the findings of the court. (a) General rule Any person required to collect, truthfully account for, and pay over any tax imposed by this title who willfully fails to collect such tax, or truthfully account for and pay over such tax, or willfully attempts in any manner to evade or defeat any such tax or the payment thereof, shall, in addition to other penalties provided by law, be liable to a penalty equal to the total amount of the tax evaded, or not collected, or not accounted for and paid over. No penalty shall be imposed under section 6653 or part II of subchapter A of chapter 68 for any offense to which this section is applicable.

Is the payee a U.S. person or is the payee a foreign payee?
  • If you are certain that the payee is a U.S. person and the payee has not provided the required information and/or certification – withhold 28% federal tax and any applicable state tax. If you have any reason to believe that the payee is a foreign individual or entity and the payee has not provided the required Form W-8 which includes a US generated TIN – you must withhold 30% federal tax and any applicable state withholding tax.
  • When issuing payments to a foreign payee – there is almost always a requirement to withhold some percentage of tax.
  • If the payee provides the Form W-8 and it is completed correctly, you are then required to comply with the tax country’s withholding treaty (if there is a treaty with the U.S.), which could be a lower percentage than the 30% rate.
  • For countries that do not have a treaty with the United States – you must withhold 30%, even if the payee provides a correct and complete Form W-8.
  • If the payee provides a Form W-8 and it is not completed with all of the correct information such as exemption codes and/or does not provide a U.S. TIN or ITIN treaty rates and exemptions do not apply – you must withhold 30%.
  • Form W-8’s may expire every 3 years and you are required to be re-solicited.
  • For payments for services, an individual foreign payee may fill out additional documentation, exempting them from withholding.
  • When issuing U.S. Source income payments to a payee who has a foreign residence address, the payer is required to determine via documented certification whether the payee is a foreign person or a U.S. resident living abroad. For U.S. citizens living abroad, re-certification is required and withholding on payments may be required.
  • Keep in mind that unlike reporting and withholding for U.S. Payees and Corporations, all entities are subject to reporting and withholding if foreign.

Organizations must ensure that any area within the organization issuing payments, keep informed of regulatory changes and apply the proper procedures to account openings, obtaining the required documents containing the TIN/Name/Status information and initiate withholding when required prior to any payment being issued.

  • If the payee is U.S. and completes the Form W-9 giving a status of corporation, the name of the payee should contain Corporation, Incorporated, INC., etc. LLC’s (in most cases) , LLP’s, Partnerships, etc. are not corporations and must be reported according to the regulations pertaining to the type of payment.
  • Payments issued to corporations for medical, legal services and gross proceeds paid to an attorney are required to be reported.
  • Each Payer (FEIN) is required to comply with TIN certification and withholding requirements Any change in status, even an address change of country requires new solicitation of any U.S. or foreign payee.
  • Several types of payments are not included on the B-Notice (CP2100 or CP2100A) but may be included on the TIN Penalty (972CG). In the event that a payment issued to a payee is present on the Penalty Notice Letter but did not appear on the B-Notice, it is recommended that the payer sends a letter and Form W-9 to the payee and requires the payee to properly fill out and comply with a re-certification request.
Preparing to Comply

IRS Compliance can assist your organization with this process by soliciting certifications, TIN Matching and the management of responses to all or new vendors/payees. IRSCompliance can track all activity that occurs with your payees and mange the B-Notice and TIN Penalty processing as well. This process will provide you with reasonable assurance that you have obtained the correct TIN/Name combinations from your W-8 / W-9 forms and/or begun the process of withholding or payment suspension.

Current regulatory law requires any U.S. organization issuing U.S. Source income payments to properly obtain the tax identification number (TIN) and legally related name from each payee along with their tax status – individual, corporation, LLC, LLP, partnership, or other designation. In many cases, depending on the type of payment, the payer is required to obtain a certified copy of Form W9 from a U.S. Payee or a Form W-8 from a foreign payee.

Failure to obtain the TIN, legal name and status places the payer in the position of being required to withhold federal tax and possibly state tax from each payment. This withholding must continue until the payer receives the required information and proper documentation, as required (Form W-9, Form W-8).

Many organizations issuing such payments should understand that failure to initiate the required withholding transfers the financial liability for the amount of withholding to the company. Therefore, a payer who fails to obtain the proper TIN and name certification and fails to withhold can incur penalties for failure to withhold, timely deposit of the tax withheld and the correct amount of the tax required to be withheld.

If your company finds itself in the position where a payee has not provided the TIN, name and status when requested or has not completed the required documentation (Form W-9/Form W-8) – a determination of U.S. or foreign status must be made based on the knowledge of the payee’s information.

IRS Compliance assists and supports client’s TIN Management requirements throughout the year.

IRS Compliance offers solicitation and certification services to obtain, certify and validate payee documentation on behalf of your organization, & can be customized to meet your needs.

Services Provided
  • W-8 and W-9 solicitation
  • Documentation, Recording & Validation for US & Foreign Payees
  • Documentation of payee’s failure to respond to notices/solicitations
Optional Services
  • Generation of a cover letter to explain to the payee the need for their response with the certificate
  • The letter would also explain the resulting withholding of tax for any future payments should they not respond with the required valid information. The mailing would also include the forms to be completed
  • The mailing may include the IRSC address for response and the IRSC phone number for them to call with questions regarding the request for certification
  • IRS Compliance would field calls with regulatory questions
  • From the responses received, IRSC will review all documents for validity
  • Any documents validated will be TIN Matched against the IRS database to check for validity wherever permitted by the IRS
  • The responses determined to be invalid will be followed up and re-solicited or contacted with the second request

Has your company received an IRS 972CG (TIN Penalty Assessment) Letter?

Even some of the best-managed companies can find themselves liable for millions of dollars in Penalties and Backup Withholding costs. Ever changing Federal and State Regulations regarding withholding and reporting regulations consistently exposes your company to penalties, interest and withholding liabilities for failure to comply. New regulations apply to specific segments of the business community and government agencies with complex and burdensome requirements. Now is the time to examine your risks for past noncompliance, cure those risks and prepare your company to comply with current and new regulations. IRS Compliance can assist with a comprehensive Risk Assessment, curing failures and implementing compliant policies and procedures to ensure ongoing compliance.

Why would my company be audited?

The IRS and States routinely check for non-compliance with tax reporting. It is projected that a majority to 100% of companies in the United States will undergo either an audit or compliance review within the next 3 years. The IRS has announced that audits will now include 1099 and 1042-S review for compliance with Payee TIN Certification, the implementation of backup withholding when required, filing correctly and timely and proper identification of payees as U.S. or foreign.

Has your company had the following?
  • Incorporated FACTA Policies & Procedures?
  • Are your business areas FATCA Compliant?
  • Ever filed annual Information Returns late with any tax authority?
  • Failed to file the proper state and local quarterly returns?
  • Received “B” Notices from IRS?
  • Failed to perform re solicitation in a timely manner?
  • Failed to begin backup withholding in a timely manner?
  • Received IRS 972CG Notices?

If you answered yes to any of these questions, you may have significant tax risk exposure.

How do I protect my company?

You can protect your company by being proactive. Waiting for the IRS or a state to raise the issue could be extremely costly.

Our goal at IRS Compliance is to help you avoid an audit, or at least be in a position to control the audit if selected.

The IRS has stepped up the number of audits currently being conducting and their effort to audit 100% of all organizations issuing payments to U.S. and foreign payees. With the onset of the new FATCA (Foreign Account Tax Compliance Act) regulations, on boarding payees properly(both U.S. and foreign), determining the correct federal and tax withholding and filing information returns has become more complex, which can lead to greater financial risk for non-compliance.

An IRS audit can lead to an examination of all payment practices including:
  • Corporate and departmental policies and procedures
  • Documenting U.S. and Foreign Payees
  • FATCA Compliance
  • Foreign Payment treaty withholding
  • Backup withholding
  • Withholding deposits
  • Information Reporting to the IRS and states
  • Payee Statements
  • B-Notice Processing and Follow up
  • TIN Penalty processing and Follow up
  • Corrections processing and reporting
  • Payee status controls
  • Regulatory updates and controls
  • Oversight

In the course of ensuring that U.S. payers comply with regulatory law and with the current economic conditions, the U.S. Treasury, IRS and Congress are challenged to enforce the current regulations; impose liabilities for failure to withhold tax, and all penalties and interest associated with failure to comply with the tax regulations that apply when issuing payments to U.S and foreign payees. Additionally, Congress continues to cope with the need for new or changes in regulatory requirements, which result in ever changing requirements.

Under an IRS audit, & even some state audits, the auditor will ask to review your corporate and departmental policies and procedures when issuing payments for; documenting payees, withholdings, deposits, reporting and controls.

For Reportable Payees & Payments
  • Ensure your regulatory Forms 1099 and 1042-S compliance with sound policies and procedures
  • Learn insider secrets to develop sound policies and procedures that the IRS will commend during audits
  • Avoid devastating penalties for 1099 and 1042-S filings with sound policies and procedures
  • Prove your intent to comply with new 1042-S and 1099 regulations – develop sound policies and procedures immediately
Your Organizations Policies & Procedures

Corporate policies and procedures are required to establish the company’s position on compliance with the regulations and internal enforcement. Departmental policies and procedures address the steps and functions that will ensure that anytime an account is opened or a payment made, that procedures are adhered to for obtaining payee TIN/EIN information, federal and state withholding is applied (if required), and that original and corrected returns have been properly filed.

As part of an information reporting audit or a compliance check, the IRS may ask to examine corporate and departmental policies and take a close look at the procedures that are followed in the process of establishing a payee/vendor account, issuing payment, withholding, reporting and ongoing tracking of payee withholding status. The IRS may examine the software or methods utilized by your company for regulatory processes and can request historical data on any of the payees and payments, payee documentation and withholding deposit history.

Establishing and enforcing up-to-date policies and procedures for any area in your company that may issue payments is critical to avoid costly penalties and liability! As part of an IRS audit, policies and procedures will be reviewed for compliance and enforcement.

IRS Compliance can assist in developing the necessary policies and procedures for both the corporate and business areas and assist in their implementation.

Now is the time to examine your current processes and determine what procedures or changes your company needs to ensure that all business areas adhere to compliant guidelines when opening accounts and issuing payments. Improve your procedures and reduce your risks during an audit.

IRS Compliance assists organizations striving to identify and “cure” errors and / or omissions in past processing and filing of information returns to the IRS & the states.

If your business has become aware that certain payments were not reported properly or not reported at all, payees were not certified correctly or the information reported previously was not correct – we can assist in attempting to resolve these past or present issues by identifying the risk area and taking steps to remedy the error – prior to that IRS or state(s) issues a penalty or an audit.

Errors may have been discovered by your own organization, by IRS Compliance via a Risk Assessment or even a request for information issued by the IRS or state. In order to reduce or eliminate that possible liability – we can attempt to clearly identify the failure and remedy it if at all possible.
