Course description

Opening new accounts and reporting correct taxpayer identification numbers has never been so challenging. First you have to identify the status of the person, then you have to set the account up correctly in the system. Any little thing that does not match the IRS name control file can cause your institution to be fined $100 per account. Plus, if you do get fined, you must respond properly or the IRS can fine you even more! During this program you will learn the ins and outs of setting up new account titling and matching SSNs, EINs and ITINs. You will learn the common errors and how to fix them.

This webinar pays for itself with just three TIN/name fixes!

  • What is an SSNs, EINs and ITINs?

  • Why do we have to get interest reporting right?
  • What happens when names and TINs do not match?
  • What are the exemptions to backup withholding and the codes?
  • What is the liability to the institution for name/TIN mismatches?
  • What do we do when we get a CP2100 letter or a penalty letter from the IRS?
  • What is the role of the W-9, W-8BEN and W-8BENE in determining the correct SSN, EIN and ITIN?
  • Now that ITINs expire, what does that mean to the financial institution?
