Form 1099 NEC, Nonemployee Compensation is the tax form for reporting income paid to nonemployees by a business. While income paid to an employee is reported using Form W-2, 1099-NEC must be filed to report income paid to freelancers and independent contractors.
Let’s say you hired an independent contractor to paint your office space. The payments made to the contractor must be reported using Form 1099NEC. The Internal Revenue Service makes it mandatory to use these information returns for payments that exceed $600 during the tax year. Because the contractor/freelancer won’t have the necessary tax forms to report the income earned from this, the person hired rely on the payer to receive it.
The deadline to file Form 1099-NEC is the same as the majority of other 1099s – January 31st. There is also Form 1096 that reports the Forms 1099 filed during the tax year to the Internal Revenue Service. If you’ve filed Forms 1099 on paper, you aren’t required to mail them using Form 1096. You can simply file Form 1099 NEC on paper and 1096 electronically. The deadline to transmit these tax forms to the Internal Revenue Service is March 31st for e-filers and February 28th for mailed-in information returns.

Do I file Form 1099 MISC or 1099 NEC?
Both forms can be used for the same purpose. So, you can fill out either one of them, but to make ease the tax obligations – you might want to fill out Form 1099-MISC rather than 1099-NEC. Because you will need to file Form 1096 for every type of 1099 you file, file Form 1099-MISC if you’re filing it form for other purposes, such as rents, healthcare payments, and attorney payments. This overall will make you not file an additional Form 1096. Nevertheless, you can use either one of these two forms without any problems.
