The Small Business/Self-Employed operating division delivered this seminar at the IRS Nationwide Tax Forum in Orlando, Florida, in July 2011.
Starting in 2006, Congress enacted a number of provisions to enhance tax filing accuracy through third-party information reporting. The legislation requires new information reporting to the IRS, individual and business taxpayers. This session is designed to help third-party information reporters understand the new provisions as well as assist them in complying with the new reporting requirements for securities sales, credit card sales and government payments for products or services.
By the end of this presentation you will:
- Learn about third party reporting legislation passed by Congress which provides better documentation to compute and report income/basis
- Understand payment card and third party network transactions as described in IRC §6050W
- Understand securities basis reporting as described in IRC §6045(g)
- Find out how IRS will use new information reporting to improve voluntary compliance
No prerequisites or advanced preparation are required for this seminar.
