Product summary

Our tools were originally developed in the 1990s at PricewaterhouseCoopers, LLP by a team of lawyers, accountants, software programmers and operations personnel specialised in section 1441 compliance.

We have a history of working closely with the IRS, and those who have written the tax rules have reviewed our products.

Drawing on extensive experience in domestic and non-resident withholding (Forms W-8, W-9, 8233) and information return reporting (Forms 1042-S, 1099 and 8966) as well as the Foreign Account Tax Compliance Act (FATCA) and the impending Common Reporting Standard (CRS), Markit | CTI Tax Solutions helps improve confidence in tax compliance audit readiness.
