The registration period for this meeting has ended.

For 2021 tax reporting season, the IRS has made changes to Form 10990-NEC. The changes are geared directly at providing flexibility for Direct Sellers in their annual tax reporting obligations to help them minimize the issue of having to send both a 1099-MISC and a 1099-NEC for some resellers. The Treasury Green Book proposals include a provision to require all businesses making payments subject to backup withholding to collect certified TINs (a.k.a., Form W-9). This significant change would impact Direct Selling Companies processes for collecting TIN information and could increase the risk of 24% backup withholding liability.
• What are the IRS changes to both Forms 1099-NEC and 1099-MISC and how does that impact Direct Selling Companies? What are the changes to Form 1099-K?
• What changes have states made to the requirements for reporting Form 1099-NEC and Form 1099-MISC?
• How might the proposed changes in Form W-9 requirements in the annual Treasury Green Book impact Direct Selling Companies {as early as January 1, 2022}?

Join Sovos and the Direct Selling Association (DSA) as we review how the changes impact Direct Selling Companies and relief that we hope is on the way to alleviate some of the associated challenges.
