B-Notice InfographicTax information reporting is a year-long process.

  • In January, you print and mail your 1099 forms.
  • In March, you transmit these records to the IRS.
  • In October, the IRS will send your business CP2100 notices.
  • In November, you’ll collect responses, update the records, and start/stop backup withholding.
  • In August (now!), the IRS will send 972CG notices to your businesses from previous years’ information returns. Based on these notices you’ve received, you are now in the throws of sending solicitations and responding to penalty notices.
