Instructions for Form 1099-NEC

To use the 1099-NEC properly, you need to understand what is considered non-employee compensation.

Previously reported on Box 7 of the 1099-MISC, the new 1099-NEC will report any payments of $600 or more to nonemployee service providers, such as independent contractors, freelancers, vendors, consultants and other self-employed individuals (commonly referred to as 1099 workers).

According to the IRS, a combination of these four conditions makes a payment reportable on the 1099NEC:

  • It is made to someone who is not your employee.
  • It is made for services in the course of your trade or business.
  • It was made to an individual, partnership, estate, or, in some cases, a corporation.
  • Payments were $600 or more for the calendar year.

Examples of when to use 1099NEC forms:

  • Professional service fees to attorneys, accountants or architects
  • Fees paid by one professional to another
  • Payments for services, including those for parts or materials used to perform the services, even if they were incidental
  • Commissions paid to nonemployee salespeople, not repaid during the year


  • Payments for merchandise, phone, freight, storage or similar items.
  • Payments to a tax-exempt organization, including tax-exempt trusts or governments.

Dos and Don’ts for 1099-NEC

✓ Do verify that the recipient’s taxpayer ID is correct. You must have Form W-9 from each recipient with the current taxpayer ID before you complete Form 1099-NEC.

✘ Don’t use Form 1099-NEC to report personal payments.
✘ Don’t use Form 1099-NEC to report employee wages; use Form W-2 instead.
✘ Don’t report gross proceeds to an attorney (not fees) on Form 1099-NEC; use Form 1099-MISC instead.
✘ Don’t use Form 1099-NEC to report payments of rent to real estate agents or property managers; use Form 1099-MISC instead.

Please note: You must also file Form 1099-NEC (report in box 4) for anyone from whom you withheld federal income tax under the backup withholding rules, regardless of the amount.
