Understanding The IRS Form 1099-NEC
Form 1099-NEC is a type of information return used by businesses to report non-employee compensation payments made during the calendar year. This includes payments made to independent contractors, freelance workers, and other payees who do not have an employer-employee relationship with the business. Payments that are reported on Form 1099-NEC include the following:
• Gross proceeds paid to attorneys or someone instead of attorney’s fees
The threshold for reporting payments on Form 1099-NEC is $600 or more. This means that if you made any payments totaling at least $600 to a single recipient (or to a group of related recipients) during the calendar year, then you must report those payments on Form 1099-NEC.
Information That Should Be Reported On 1099-NEC
Form 1099-NEC requires you to report the name and address of the recipient, as well as the amount paid. The form also requires you to provide your federal employer identification number (EIN), which is used to identify you for tax purposes. Here’s the list of information that must be provided:
1. Recipient’s name, address, and taxpayer identification number (TIN)
2. Amount paid in the calendar year for services rendered or to reimburse expenses
3. Employer Identification Number (EIN) of your business
4. Any other amounts paid, such as taxes or attorney’s fees.
5. State tax withholding information, if any, is due.
6. Additional applicable local, state, and federal taxes or filing requirements, if any are applicable.
7. Check the box indicating whether payments were made during the recipient’s trade or business (if it applies).
Remember to provide accurate and timely 1099-NEC information filing to the IRS and your contractor. Not doing so can lead to hefty fines and penalties – none of us want that! So, ensure all the required information is included when filing 1099-NEC forms.
