1099 Dos and Don'ts

Understanding information reporting using the 1099 series of returns is crucial for the practitioner. Not only are there penalties for failure to file and inaccurate filing, the IRS uses these information returns in its document matching program to identify problems on Form 1040 and other tax returns.
