Gillian bought a ticket to see "The Celtic Blast," the newest rock sensation from Ireland, when they appeared in concert at her small college in Iowa. Is Gillian a withholding agent? Each year, over 100,000 non-resident alien (NRA) athletes and entertainers perform independent personal services at thousands of venues throughout the USA. Who is responsible for withholding and reporting on the income they earn? In this session, you'll discover who is required to withhold, deposit, and report on the income earned by non-resident alien athletes and entertainers. Learn more about withholding requirements, withholding certificates, tax treaty benefit limitations and the alternative to potential over withholding. Take your ticket, grab a seat, and be prepared to be enlightened.

By the end of this presentation you will:

 

  • understand the special withholding rules that apply to foreign athletes and entertainers.
  • be able to determine if a foreign athlete or entertainer is a non-resident alien.
  • know what a Withholding Agent is and their duties.
  • understand the Sportsmen and Artist Provision of the tax treaty.
