Form 1099-NEC: Compensation of Nonemployees

What is Form 1099-NEC: Compensation of Nonemployees? Form 1099-NEC is the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) form used by businesses to report payments made to independent contractors, self-employed individuals, sole proprietors and self-employed individuals.

The current form is an updated design of the 1982 form of the same name. Prior to 2020, all non-employee compensation was reported in Box 7 of Form 1099-MISC. Form 1099-NEC was resurrected in 2020 to resolve confusion related to the January 31 and March 31 dual filing deadlines for reporting certain income and compensation on Form 1099-MISC. This dual filing deadline confused many payers.

Form 1099-NEC is one of many 1099 tax forms, including 1099-MISC for miscellaneous income, 1099-INT for interest income and 1099-DIV for dividend and distribution income.

The deadline for payers to complete Form 1099-NEC is January 31. Recipients receive a 1099-NEC if they received more than $600 in nonemployee compensation in a year. Independent contractors, self-employed individuals, sole proprietors and self-employed individuals are examples of “nonemployees” who would receive a 1099-NEC.

Who can file Form 1099-NEC: Nonemployee Compensation?
