Oracle Payable Plans For 1099 Reporting in the Current Tax Year



1099 Reporting for Tax Year 2020



Form 1099-MISC is used for reporting certain payments like Rent, Royalties, Medical and healthcare payments and so on. Non-employee compensation (NEC) was reported in Box 7 of Form 1099-MISC till Tax Year 2019. Beginning from Tax Year 2020, non-employee compensation must be reported in Form 1099-NEC.

The separation of non-employee compensation into a new form allows taxpayers to adhere to the separate deadlines for Form 1099-NEC and Form 1099-MISC. Form 1099-NEC must be submitted before end of January while Form 1099-MISC can be submitted by end of February.

Along with the creation of a new Form 1099-NEC, IRS revised Form 1099-MISC and rearranged the boxes for reporting certain income.

This document discusses the changes in these forms and how it impacts the users of Payables.
