Before you get started filing, here are some basic reminders:
If you paid a contractor $600 or more to perform work for your business during the calendar year (Jan 1- Dec 31), then yes, the IRS requires you to report that amount paid on a 1099 NEC form. You are required to send the recipient a copy by Jan 31 and file to the IRS by Jan 31 to avoid penalties.
1099 MISC reporting includes many different payment types to individuals in partnerships or those operating under an LLC which is treated as a partnership or sole proprietorship. This also applies to any broker payments in lieu of dividends for tax-exempt interest, as well as royalties, paid in the amount of $10 or more during the year. Medical and health care payments, as well as some attorney fees also require 1099-MISC reporting.
