LIVE ONLINE TRAINING COURSE
1.5 CEU HRCI | 1.5 PDC SHRM APPROVED
For years, businesses reported payments to contractors in box 7 of the 1099-MISC. Starting in 2021, this is changing; contract-labor payments will now go on the Form 1099-NEC. We will discuss this new form as well as changes to the 1099-MISC in light of this new form being rolled out. Other topics covered include penalties and how to get out of penalties; using the Form W-9 for compliance; how to tell the difference between a contractor and an employee; how to deal with reimbursements to contractors.
This webinar will cover changes in the 1099 world for 2021. For the first time in many years, significant changes are coming to the Form 1099-MISC, in particular with how contract labor pay is reported. Businesses will no longer use the 1099-MISC to report contract labor pay, but will instead use Form 1099-NEC, a form last seen in 1982 that is being brought back into use by the IRS.
This webinar will cover the scenarios where a 1099-MISC or 1099-NEC needs issued, and the scenarios where reporting is not required. We will also cover Form 1099-K and how it interacts with the 1099-MISC and 1099-NEC. The electronic filing mandate is changing as well and is dropping, so more businesses will fall under the e-file mandate. Penalties will apply for not complying. We will cover the e-filing mandate, other penalty situations, and how to potentially get out of penalties.
