W-9 Deposit Account Set Up and Interest Reporting—B Notices and Back Up Withholding

Our job as a withholding agent for the IRS is more complicated than ever. Now that the new FATCA rules are in effect, establishing the account holder as a US Person and having them sign a more complicated W-9 is a difficult process. Adding the W-8BEN and W-8BENE increases the degree of difficulty.

We will look at the name control match process, the IRS CP2100 process, how your institution may begin back up withholding, and many other issues. Learn how to get the forms right at new accounts so the IRS reporting is correct and in compliance.
