If you file 1099 Forms for your business, you’ll need to know about recent changes to both the Forms 1099- NEC and Forms 1099-MISC
What’s New for Form 1099-NEC
The most important change that you need to be aware of is that the non-employee compensation (formerly on box 7 of the Form 1099-MISC) has now moved to Form 1099-NEC.
The PATH Act accelerated the due date for filing Form 1099 from February 28 to January 31. It also eliminated the 30-day extension for forms that include the NEC.
The Redesigned Form 1099-MISC
Other changes with Form 1099 include:
- Crop insurance proceeds are reported in box 9.
- Gross proceeds to an attorney are reported in box 10.
- Section 409A deferrals are reported in box 12.
- Nonqualified deferred compensation income is reported in box 14.
- Boxes 15, 16, and 17 report state taxes withheld, state identification number, and amount of income earned in the state, respectively.
Changes to Form 1099-MISC
