Norwood, MA (PRWEB) March 1, 2010
Windstar Technologies, the experienced leader in international tax and immigration compliance, will hold a two-day seminar on nonresident alien tax issues April 27th – 28th at the Doubletree Guest Suites in Boston, Massachusetts. The comprehensive seminar will provide high quality education on tax- and immigration-related rules and regulations needed to stay ahead of recent IRS audit initiatives.
“The IRS announced that it plans to hire 2,400 new international enforcement specialists, with 750 to be assigned to audit NRA withholding and reporting on payments made to nonresident aliens and foreign entities,” said Windstar’s chair and award-winning author Paula N. Singer, Esq. “With the Obama administration making international tax compliance a major piece of its 2010 budget, the IRS will have the financial, personnel, and technical resources to effectively enforce these tax rules and procedures. For almost 15 years, Windstar’s seminars have helped countless administrators from the tax-exempt sector - higher education, healthcare and research industries learn how to handle nonresident alien taxation correctly and more efficiently. Now that NRA withholding has been raised to a Tier I issue requiring consideration during any corporate audit, for-profit organizations are also in need of this experience.”
The two-day lecture based seminar provides multiple sessions lead by industry experts including:
- Paula N. Singer, Esq., Windstar’s co-founder and renowned expert on nonresident alien taxation
- Linda Dodd-Major, Esq., former director of the INS’ Office of Business Liaison
- Marianne Couch, Esq. - principal with COKALA Tax Information Reporting Solutions, LLC
- Terri Crowl - Windstar’s senior product support analyst and former NRA Tax Coordinator for George Mason University.
