About Form 1099-MISC...

Form 1099-MISC is an information return used to report miscellaneous income to the IRS. This form is used to report:

  • Income earned by an independent contractor but not an employee ($600 or more)
  • Fees, commissions, rents
  • Royalties paid ($10 or more)
  • Payment for prizes, awards, or legal services ($600 or more)
  • Excess golden parachute payments
  • Medical and health care payments ($600 or more)

Any business that has paid you $600 USD or more to an independent contractor, or at least $10 USD in royalties, must provide the recipient with a 1099-MISC form by January 31st of the year following payment. On March 23, 2010, the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act was signed in to law which significantly expanded IRS Form 1099-MISC information reporting requirements. On April 14, 2011, President Obama signed into law the Comprehensive 1099 Taxpayer Protection and Repayment of Exchange Subsidy Overpayments Act of 2011 (H.R.4) which repealed the expansion of 1099-MISC information reporting requirements. As a result, the current 1099-MISC reporting results remain in effect.

Due Dates...

Furnish Copy B of this form to the recipient by January 31. The due date is extended to February 15 if you are reporting payments in boxes 8 or 14.

File Copy A of Form 1099-MISC with the IRS by February 28. If you file electronically, the due date is March 31.

Electronically Deliver Copy B...

Printing, folding, stuffing, sealing and postage (44 cents) brings the overall cost of mailing Copy B to recipients to 78 cents or more per mailing, depending on how many mailings you are sending out. There is a cheaper, quicker, easier and more effective way of sending out Copy B to recipients and that is to electronically deliver Copy B.

One way to reduce the cost of mailing is to electronically deliver the 1099 information return. “1099FIRE can import your data from Excel, convert each record to an individual PDF file and bulk upload each PDF to our secure server”, said Erich Ruth, Technical Support for 1099FIRE. Clients then receive an email notifying them of the tax form and a link where they can view and/or download the PDF file. Electronically deliver eliminates the need to print and mail which in turn saves you time and money.
