What is a Form 1099-NEC?
The Form 1099-NEC (non-employee compensation) is a form used to track the amount of income paid to independent contractors and businesses (that are not corporations).
The general rule is that you must issue a Form 1099-NEC to any independent contractors that you've paid at least $600 in services in the tax year.
Not all Contractors or Vendors need to receive a Form 1099-NEC Before issuing a 1099-NEC form you should determine if the Contractor is eligible:
1. Must be an Independent Contractor (not an employee)
2. Business must be structured as an LLCs or Partnership (Corporations do not require a 1099)
3. Payments to the contractor must exceed the $600 threshold in the tax year
1. Corporations (including LLCs or partnerships treated as a S or C-Corp) - Only LLC or Partnerships are eligible to receive 1099s
2. Suppliers - Payments to Contractors for merchandise or goods do not need to be issued a 1099.
3. Payments Made via Credit Card or Paypal - Payments made to Contractors via credit card or through Paypal do not need a 1099.
4. Personal Expenses - Expenses paid to Contractors for personal use do not need to be issued a 1099
For a complete list of exclusions be sure to review the IRS Guidelines
You paid ABC Painting, LLC $3,000 via Check to paint one of your house flips. In this scenario, ABC Painting would need to be issued a 1099-NEC because they are an Independent Contractor, structured as an LLC that was paid via check over $600 in the year.
You flipped 5 houses and spent $28,520 at Home Depot in 2020. In this scenario, Home Depot would **NOT** need a 1099-NEC because they are a Corporation & you likely paid Home Depot with a credit card which is reported to the IRS by the payment processor.
You paid $800 for appliances from a random guy off Craigslist and paid cash. In this scenario, the random guy off Craigslist would not need a 1099-NEC because you paid for 'goods' or 'merchandise' and did not pay for a Service.
For 2020, you will need the issue your Statements to your Recipients and the IRS by February 1st.
