IRS Audit & ERC Issues

On September 22, 2022 the US Treasury's Financial Crimes Enforcement Network (FinCEN) issued final rules requiring beneficial ownership reporting for small businesses, i.e. single truck owner operators. The rule requires businesses to file reports with FinCEN that identify two categories of individuals:

  • the beneficial owners of the entity, and

  • the company applicants of the entity


This rule requires most corporations, LLC's and similar businesses created in or registerd to do business in the United States to report (disclose) information about their beneficial owners to FinCEN. The rules came out of Corporate Transparency Act passed by the Biden administration in January 2021.

The purpose of the new reporting rule is to allow the Federal government to create a national database of information concerning the individuals who, directly or indirectly, own a substantial interest in, or substantial control over (beneficial owners) certain types of domestic and foreign entities.
