Event Time: 1 pm EST
Duration:60 Minutes


IRS CP-2100 letters are sent by the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) to businesses who have filed information returns (1099s) with missing or incorrect taxpayer identification numbers (TINs). These letters serve as a warning to payers about their non-compliant filings and provide instructions for correcting the errors. Responding promptly and accurately to CP-2100 letters is essential to avoid penalties and maintain compliance with tax regulations. This webinar will cover how to deal with CP-2100 letters and how to avoid them in the first place.

Learning Objectives:

CP-2100 letters can be a hassle for any business that issues 1099s. This webinar will cover how to respond to CP-2100 letters and possibly avoid them in the first place. As time allows we will also delve into employee vs. contractor — is that “contractor” really an employee?
