It’s Time to File Your 2019 1099-Misc Forms

If you made payments to non-employees during the calendar year, you may be required to issue Form 1099 informational filings. The Internal Revenue Service requires that taxpayers engaged in a trade or business issue a Form 1099-Misc to any unincorporated entity to which they paid during the calendar year, at least $600 in rents, services (including parts and materials), or other income payments. In general, Form 1099-Misc does not have to be issued to corporations. The exemption from issuing Form 1099-Misc to corporations does not apply to payments for legal, medical or health care services provided by corporations, including professional corporations. All businesses must issue 1099-Misc forms to their vendors/contractors by January 31, 2020.
