Course Description

Taxpayers who make payments of certain US-source income to foreign persons must comply with certain withholding and reporting requirements. The IRS recently announced an LB&I compliance campaign to examine taxpayers who make such payments but do not withhold, pay, and/or report as required.

This panel explains who is a withholding agent required to withhold tax on payments to foreign payees, some of the surprising ways in which they can become liable for tax due on money they paid out to others, and how the IRS is pursuing them for payment. Also discussed are the main impact and requirements of the Foreign Account Tax Compliance Act for withholding agents.

Learning Objectives

  • Identify regulations related to foreign entities and their U.S. tax withholdings.
