The IRS office of Federal, State, and Local Governments (FSLG) invites you to participate in a webinar to be conducted May 12 at 2pm on the topic of international tax issues affecting governments. The webinar is entitled “Payments Made to Foreign Persons: A Basic Overview for Government Entities.”
The discussion 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.
The webinar will be about one hour in length and will be archived for later viewing through the FSLG website.
Enrolled agents may receive Continuing Professional Education credit for their participation.
