What is the redesigned 1099-MISC tax form?

Because of the updates related to Form 1099-NEC, Form 1099-MISC has been revised. Specifically, the box numbers for reporting certain income have been rearranged. Start reporting your independent contractor income using the Form 1099-NEC to report for the tax year 2020. If your company paid more than $600 to an independent contractor, make sure to fill out the 1099-NEC. Pay attention to the type of contractor’s corporation. C and S corporations (for the contractors) imply that you are not required to fill out a 1099-NEC.

If at least $600 was paid to the individual or LLC, please make sure to file a 1099-MISC:

Rents
Prizes and awards
Medical and health care payments
Crop insurance proceeds
Cash payments for fish (or other aquatic life) you purchase from anyone engaged in the trade or business of catching fish
Generally, the cash paid from a notional principal contract to an individual, partnership, or estate
Payments to an attorney
Any fishing boat proceeds

Here are the changes made in the current 1099-MISC form.

Direct sales of $5,000 or more that were made by a payer should now be written in box 7.
Report crop insurance proceeds in box 9.
Report Gross proceeds to an attorney in box 10.
Report section 409A deferrals in box 12.
Report nonqualified deferred compensation income in box 14.
State taxes withheld, state identification number, and amount of income earned in a state should now be reported in boxes 15, 16, and 17.

Dates: File Form 1099-MISC by March 1st, 2021, if you file on paper, or by March 31st, 2021, if you file electronically.

Take into consideration: Form 1099-MISC should only include the payments that are made in the course of your trade or business. Do not report your personal payments using this form!

Filling the new 1099-NEC form online

Start reporting your independent contractor income using the Form 1099-NEC to report for the tax year 2020. You should submit 1099-NEC in these cases:

A payment was made to someone who is not your employee.
A payment was made in the course of your trade or business.
Your company made a payment to an individual, partnership, estate, or corporation.
Your company paid more than $600 to an independent contractor

Pay attention to the contractor corporation type. C and S contractor corporations imply that you are not required to fill out 1099-NEC.

There are two copies of the 1099-NEC:
Copy A should be submitted to the IRS
Copy B should be received by the contractor you worked with
Make sure to send a copy of the form to the contractor!

Are you an independent contractor? You’re not required to file the 1099-NEC to the IRS, but you should have your copy from the company you worked with!

Make sure that the form includes the following critical information:
Payer's data
Recipient's data
Nonemployee’s compensation amount
Federal income tax withheld
State information

Nonemployee compensation in box 1 should contain the total compensation for the past tax year.

Any federal income tax withheld is reported in box 4, although it’s uncommon that this will be the case unless you have received a backup withholding order for that person. If your state has an income tax, include the total payment amount to that person for the year and any state tax you withheld in box 5.

Before submitting Copy B to the contractor, make sure to get their consent. Obtain it via email or any other way you’re planning to send the copy.

Pay taxes online
It’s more convenient to fill and e-file the 1099-MISC form online due to the fact that the IRS can only scan physical 1099-MISC forms obtained from a tax office. However, you may receive a penalty if you submit a form printed from an online copy. But all in all, paying taxes online has a number of benefits:
Ability to file from anywhere
Ensured accuracy
Time and money savings
Avoid added interest and penalties
