Reminder – Form W-2s and 1099s Are Due in January


When you running a small business, it is important to know which form is used when the tax season come. The most common forms in business are Form W-2s and 1099s.



What is Form W-2?

Let’s start with a quick refresher: Form W-2 is the document that employers use to report each employee’s wages and earnings to the IRS as well as the employees.

How to file Form W-2?

Most businesses use accounting and payroll software, which will complete fillings of Form W-2 for employers, even automatically mailing the employee copies to them. You can file from e-file or paper and send it to IRS.

This is a Form W-2


Understanding payment categories for the Form 1099s

What is new for tax year 2020?

From 2020, the IRS has introduced the new Form 1099-NEC just for reporting independent contractor income. Because of this, you are no longer using Form 1099-MISC for reporting non-employee compensation. Let’s check out new arrangement and box numbers for reporting certain income.


What is Form 1099-NEC?

Form 1099- NEC is a new document specifically used to report the amounts for non-employee who worked for you during 2020 and earned more than $600. Non-employee who is not on payroll on a contract basis. If you do not have contractor’s information, ask them to fill out Form W-9 for the preparation of Form 1099-NEC.


New:  If you filed Form 1099-MISC with only Box 7 in the past, you should more likely to choose Box 1 (Nonemployee compensation) on the Form 1099-NEC.


What is Form 1099-MISC?

Form 1099-MISC is to report payments made in course of a trade or business to non-employee.
