Form 1099-MISC - Miscellaneous Income

With tax season now in full swing, many business owners and employers are getting their W-2 and 1099-MISC Forms together to meet the upcoming January 31 deadline. Form 1099-MISC must be filed with the IRS by employers and a copy of the Form must be provided to the recipient as well. Completing this requirement can easily be filed with TaxBandits.

Used to report miscellaneous income or payments made by businesses to people not considered to be its employees for various services performed, Form 1099-MISC can report payments made towards subcontractor wages, rental payments, prizes, awards, and more. Any contracted worker that was paid $600 or more for their services during a tax period must receive a Form 1099-MISC.

What is the difference between Form 1099-MISC and Form 1099-NEC?

The non-employee compensation is usually reported on Form 1099-MISC Box 7. To clear up the deadline confusion and to separate non-employee expenses, the IRS introduced 1099-NEC for tax year 2020. The arrival of this form means that the non-employee compensation doesn’t have to be reported using Form 1099-MISC anymore.
