IRS Plans May 12 Webinar Addressing Payments Made To Foreign Persons
IRS has scheduled a webinar for May 12 as part of a series of such events dealing with international tax issues affecting governments. The webinar is entitled “Payments Made to Foreign Persons: A Basic Overview for Government Entities.” The program will cover such topics as U.S. sourced income; employer responsibilities for withholding on payments to aliens; Forms 1042 and 1042-S; and documentation required from nonresident aliens who receive U.S. income. “The webinar should be especially helpful to public universities, as well as other units of government that employ nonresident aliens or do business with foreign vendors; as well as tax practitioners and advisors to these organizations,” IRS said. Participating enrolled agents may receive Continuing Professional Education credit.
