How hard is everyone pushing their corporate clients to authorize nonresident assignees whose only 2020 US compensation was the value of their 2019 tax preparation?
My clients are pushing back on it this year, and I can't say I blame them. If I were in their shoes, I'd rather take the risk of not filing than the expense of filing again. From my own point of view, I don't really want to spend my time on such returns, either, even if the revenue and easy return are nice.

Why wouldn’t it have been grossed in payroll? If it was not then they’d probably consider de minimis.

If there is a filing requirement, you should tell the company that their employees should file, but also note risk is low if they don’t. If the company decides not to provide prep again then I think they have an obligation to tell their EEs that they should file on their own. They can probably get an NR return for $100 from Taxes For Expats or H&R Block expat tax & get a small refund. lol

Do any of you not source it to work days and realize it’s probably peanuts? Then advise the client accordingly. Sounds like the client has given their view. Maybe a bit late in the day to push back on compliance obligations cos the numbers are minimal.

- Take an existing habit and add your new habit onto it
