2012 IRS Information Reporting – Part 1

New regulations require banks to report interest paid to nonresident aliens. With penalties now $100 for failure to comply with IRS information reporting requirements, banks are at risk of higher penalty assessments.

New regulations require banks to report interest paid to nonresident aliens. With penalties now $100 for failure to comply with IRS information reporting requirements, banks are at risk of higher penalty assessments. To avoid penalties financial institutions must know how the IRS Information Return Program works, evaluate procedures for creating relationships with customers and vendors, integrate changes for 2012 and lay the groundwork for a “Reasonable Cause” defense. In light of the new nonresident alien filing requirements, a review of W-8BEN policies and procedures is also in order!

This series provides the information needed to develop a successful IRS compliance program and avoid penalties. It will also help banks respond to B-notices, understand reporting requirements for specific types of returns and prepare an adequate defense if penalties are assessed.

Highlights

Your Bank’s IRS Compliance Program, Lending Related Returns & Reporting of Miscellaneous Income. Part 1 focuses on the mechanics of your IRS compliance program, lending- related returns and 1099-Misc reporting. Participants learn how to:

  • manage the input and outflow of information to reduce or avoid penalties;
  • develop an on-going defense to potential penalties;
  • file corrections and
  • respond to a notice of proposed penalty (972CG).

Participants learn when filing is required, who is responsible for filing and when duplicate filings are required for multiple borrowers. Changes for tax year 2012 are highlighted as part of the review of forms:

  • 1098 (Mortgage Interest Statement),
  • 1099-A (Acquisition and Abandonment of Secured Property),
  • 1099-C (Cancellation of Debt), and
  • 1099-S (Proceeds from Real Estate Transactions).

Reporting miscellaneous income on the 1099-MISC, including payments made to appraisers, accountants and other non-employees is addressed.
