Client Testimonials

I had a 1099-C for about $135,000. My husband didn't have any withholding on Social Security. His employer couldn't withhold due to incompetence. I felt utter dread wash over me. Memories of owing the IRS before were constantly on my mind. I called a local CPA. Besides being clueless, he wanted to charge me for every question I had about insolvency. I looked on line and found little hope of the countless stories of permanently disabled people like myself getting their student loans forgiven only to be asked to pay taxes on it as if it were income.
Somewhere, somehow, I find an article by Gary Bode. I bookmarked it for when it's time to do the actual taxes. With his excellent help in how to do all of this out of a virtual office I get my part of the work done. My questions got answered, for free. I give a retainer, do what I said I did and wait. I hear from Gary. I go into shock! How can this be? Not only do I not owe on the 135,000....Gary itemizes and after paying what was almost nothing in taxes we get $950.00 back! No more hubby doing the taxes online! I will use Gary Bode as long as he will agree to work with me!
It was so easy, no worries, but professional and top notch. I know I have thanked you Gary but I am so grateful. Thank you ever so much again!

S Corporation CPA warns of new Form 1120-S check boxes | Form 1099-MISC

S Corporation CPA Wilmington NC discusses 2011 Form 1120-S

Gary Bode, CPA: I operate our firm as an S Corporation, so you know I stay current on Form 1120-S issues. For a free phone consult call 399-2705.

Hi, I’m Gary Bode, an S Corporation CPA with a virtual office to serve clients beyond our Wilmington base.

Two new check boxes on the 2011 Form 1120-S:

  • Did you make any payments in 2011 that would require you to file Form(s) 1099?
  • If Yes, did you or will you file all required Forms 1099?

The IRS requires S Corporations to 1099 any subcontractor or non-corporate vendor that it paid $600 or more to during the calendar year. Remember to send a copy to both the subcontractor and the IRS.

I feel this is part of a coordinated IRS effort that includes:

  • VCSP (Voluntary Classification Settlement Program). The IRS is offering low penalties to companies that mis-classify employees as subcontractors, voluntarily come clean, and, promise to be compliant in the future. The obvious reason companies mis-classify employees is to avoid employment and unemployment taxes. But any S Corporation CPA would agree the administrative hassles of payroll is another cause.
  • Trying to stem under the table payments to subcontractors, which is a foolish practice anyway for a company. Why pass on legitimate tax deductions on Form 1120-S?
  • A new and improved penalty structure for unfiled and misfiled Form 1099-MISC.
  • Penalties on Form 1120-S filed with false information.

I’m an S Corporation CPA with a virtual office to serve long distance clients. Our physical office is is Wilmington NC. Please note I operate our firm as an S Corporation, so I keep current on all Form 1120-S issues. There are hundreds of posts on this website, many on S Corporation and Form 1120-S issues. For a free phone consult, please call (910) 399-2705.

  • John Valdes

    Gary, do I need to file a 1099-MISC to the landlord of the business rental unit I had last year?

    • Gary Bode CPA admin

      As a tax preparer, I don’t think it ever hurts to file Form 1099-MISC John, even if it’s not required. Why? I think it validates rent expense. But you don’t have to file it, if your landlord is a Corporation. Hope that helps.
