What is the 1099-MISC Form?

by David Smith Personal finance consultant
1099-MISC form 2018 is a document, used by the businesses to report their additional expenses, that not cover general information, usually reported in basic tax documents. It is also called Miscellaneous Income, as it is not obligatory to send it unless you had several types of payments: sales of at least $5,000 of consumer goods; income, fish or boating payments, money, paid for the notional contract to any particular person, estate or partnership; money you pay to attorney. Also if some individuals, except your employees, performed their services to your company or corporation as well as the needed materials or/and accessories, you should report it in the template too.

The Payment Exceptions of 1099-MISC Form

1099 form is used by the individuals who are obliged to inform the Internal Revenue Service about their business payments or direct sales. This form may be quite complex, as it is important to identify what type of payment to include in it. 

According to the instructions, available at the Internal Revenue Service website, there are several cases you do not need to file the form:

  1. Payments for goods, phone, transportation, storage, and items as well for the corporation or LLC, who pays taxes as C or S type corporation.
  2. Any funds you pay for rent to real estate or property agents.
  3. Various payments for owners of homes connected with HFA.
  4. Hardest Hit funding the same type governmental program, as they report with another form.
  5. Wages paid to employees and/or business travel deductions, that are filed with W-2 form.
  6. It also includes the payments for wrongful imprisonment as well as the unlawful offense that had a condemnation in accordance with any federal or state law.
  7. Cost of current life security protection, healthcare payments (by the Department of Justice safety officer injury or survivor's benefit only).
  8. The applicant need not provide information about Scholarships in this sample. Military wage subsidies paid to hired persons during the active duty in the Armed Forces or organizations of the same type.

How to File 1099 Form In Time?

Keep careful tracking of all your expenses and make their digital copies. It will help you to keep all the information you need by hand and spend less time on the form infilling. It is much better to complete the document digitally. The most valid solution to do so in order to not to waste too much time is to fill a form using online e-filing applications. They have a feature of sending the complete document to the Internal Revenue Service right away, as well as printing it as the IRS approved hard copy (if you need it on paper exactly). I recommend considering the first option, as long as the tax forms filled electronically are more secure and can be delivered faster without any risks. The deadline of the document is the thirty-first of January. Prepare and file this form to IRS before this date. If this date is on the weekend, then you should file it much earlier in order to avoid further problems, misunderstandings, and penalties.
