RECORDED TRAINING COURSE                  1.5 CEUs HRCI Approved

For years, businesses reported payments to contractors in box 7 of the 1099-MISC.  Starting in 2020, 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 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 2020. 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.
