1099 Reporting Seminar Lineup Released for 2009

Balance Consulting's 2009 Seminar Dates Are Set and Offer an Early Registration Discount

ANN ARBOR, MI--(Marketwire - November 24, 2008) - In time for end-of-year budget planning, Balance Consulting -- the national firm specializing in Form 1099 reporting and compliance -- has released its 2009 seminar schedule. Early registration discounts on all 2009 classes are available until December 31, 2008.

The schedule is highlighted with a wide selection of 1099 classes including seminars and workshops on 1099 reporting, 1099 compliance, P-Card reporting, state tax reporting, payments to non-U.S. persons, sales and use tax and other 1099 reporting topics.

"We're looking forward to 2009 and all of our new and revamped programs," said Denise Johnson, Esq., General Counsel and Tax Compliance Manager at Balance Consulting. "We're certain that our clients will find all of the resources that they need regarding their Form 1099 reporting and compliance obligations through all of our offerings."

One of the most popular sessions in spring is the 1099 Compliance Workshop. This one-day class offers a hands-on learning opportunity to help attendees gain a clear understanding of how to stay compliant with 1099 regulations all year long. Audit readiness, reportable payments, obtaining accurate W-9 information and processing a B-Notice list are a few topics covered in this class.

Balance Consulting is offering discounts to those who register for classes now. When purchasing any one or two-day seminar, attendees receive $150 off the regular price of $595 for a one-day class, $895 for two-day classes. Registrants will save $75.00 on half-day seminars.

The savings add up quickly when multiple seminars are purchased, making this an excellent opportunity to fit training into a tight 2009 budget. Balance Consulting seminars also include 6 months of after seminar support so attendees know that their 1099 questions will be answered by a team of experienced tax professionals.

In times of departmental cut-backs, employees with little or no background are finding themselves responsible for their company's tax information reporting program. This situation creates potentially dangerous vulnerability at audit.

Training from Balance Consulting is designed to address this situation. The classes are highly praised for incorporating real-life examples and for explaining complex tax code in a language everyone can understand.

Balance Consulting, founded in 1989, offers other resources for information reporting compliance such as Form 1099 software, publications and services. For more information, please contact Balance Consulting toll-free at 800.779.1099, or on the web at www.balanceconsult.com
