Compliance with information reporting and withholding requirements continues to be challenging. Failure to comply can be costly.
Tax information reporting and withholding (IRW) regulations and forms are constantly evolving and subject to changing interpretation. KPMG LLP’s (KPMG) Information Reporting & Withholding Tax Services professionals closely monitor these areas and provide timely news subscription services that keep subscribers abreast of changes and developments to help them mitigate noncompliance risks across three areas:
KPMG IRP Alert
KPMG IRP Alert primarily focuses on U.S. federal IRW-related technical tax issues and compliance initiatives. Subscribers receive news alerts periodically via e-mail with updates on Internal Revenue Service IRW developments, such as new regulations, notices, and rulings, as well as changes to forms and filing requirements. In addition, the alerts also consider the practicalities of implementation and the potential business impact on companies.
IRP Alert news service can also include an arrangement for subscribers to discuss the content of news alerts, including related U.S. withholding or reporting issues, with KPMG’s experienced IRW professionals.
