Foreign Workers in the U.S. - A Free Webinar
The IRS has a free webinar to answer questions regarding wage payments to nonresident aliens (ie. a Canadian working in the U.S.) and vendor payments to foreign individuals or businesses (ie. Canadian businesses who do business in the U.S.).
The webinar will answer these questions*:
- When to file a Form 1042/1042-S for payments to foreign persons?
- How visa types impact employment tax reporting and payment provisions?
- What to do when documentation from a nonresident alien does not satisfy the requirements of the Form W-4?
The free webinar titled "International Issues-Payments Made to Foreign Persons-A Basic Overview for Government Entities" will be held on May 12, 2011. You can register here:
