The IRS issues forms W-8BEN, W-8BENE, and W-9. What is going on? The new FATCA rules affecting foreign financial institutions also affects US financial institutions and your job as a withholding agent.
During this program we will do a line-by-line review of the new forms and the subsequent tax reporting to the IRS. This program will focus on what a US financial institution has to do from the tax reporting and documentation process to be prepared for FATCA. We will also look at the impact on 1042S reporting changes for nonresident aliens.
