      Preparing New IRS Form 7203: S Corp Shareholder Stock Basis, Debt Basis & More

      Accounting, Payroll & Taxation

      Form 7203 is the new reporting form required by the IRS to show a shareholder basis in an S-corporation. This new form must be filed on the personal tax return (Form 1040) of most shareholders, starting with 2021 returns. 

      Form 7203 and its independent instructions are designed to replace the three-part Worksheet for Figuring a Shareholder's Stock and Debt Basis and its related instructions that were formerly included in the Shareholder's Instructions for Schedule K-1 (Form 1120-S).

      While the S corporation's basis calculations remain intact, the new form demands additional information to substantiate and justify the basis computations. As the form deals with S company stock and debt basis, some observers are under the impression that it is filed with the 1120S business return. 

      Nonetheless, the form will be included in a shareholder's income tax return if any of the following are true of the S corporation:

      • The shareholder sells his/her shares of stock during the tax year.
      • The shareholder receives a payout from the S corporation.
      • The shareholder receives a loan payback from the S corporation during the tax year.
      • The shareholder claims a loss-related deduction.

      Inflation Reduction Act of 2022 - Impact on Electric Vehicles Tax Credits

      Banking & Financial Services

      On Tuesday, 16th August Biden signed the sweeping Inflation Reduction Act of 2022, the nation’s most significant climate bill ever passed into law. One of the major parts of the bill is new tax credits for electric vehicles.

      This webinar by “Jason Dinesen” will cover those changes, including the latest IRS guidance on August 16th, and cover how the credit has changed.

      The big climate and health care bill signed into law by President Biden has what at first sight looks like a big incentive for those shopping for a car: a revamped $7,500 tax credit if you buy a new electric vehicle or $4,000 if you get a used one. There are several provisions in the new climate bill affecting the availability of EV credits, and those provisions will phase in over the coming months and years. Most of them are focused on bringing more EV and battery production to the US.

      The Inflation Reduction Act covers new and reinstated tax laws that will affect individuals and businesses.

      Effectively Handling CP 2100 letter and B Notices

      Accounting, Payroll & Taxation

      Effectively handling CP-2100 letters and sending out B Notices helps a business stay in compliance and avoid penalties. CP-2100 letters come to your business from the IRS. These letters notify you that the social security number you put on a 1099 doesn’t match what’s in the IRS’s system. For example, the social security number of a contractor. When your business receives such a letter, you must take action by sending a “B Notice” to the other party.
       
      This webinar will discuss how you can take steps to avoid CP-2100 letters to begin with, through the IRS’s “TIN Matching” program and proper usage of the Form W-9. We’ll cover more about B Notices in this program, and cover backup withholding.
