The IRS has introduced a new “old” form for 2020 — the Form 1099-NEC. This form was used years ago to report contract labor, but was retired after the 1982 tax season. It is now being brought back for 2020 and is where contract labor payments will now go. No longer will those payments be reported in box 7 of the 1099-MISC. This webinar will cover: who needs to file a 1099-MISC or 1099-NEC; what payments are reportable; the changes in 2020 for the 1099-MISC and 1099-NEC; filing issues including due dates, penalties, and how to get out of penalties; how to tell the difference between a contractor and an employee; how to use Form W-9, and other compliance tips; and how Form 1099-K interacts with the 1099-MISC and 1099-NEC.
