1099-MISC vs 1099-NEC
In 2020, the IRS released a new 1099 form for reporting non-employee compensation, the 1099-NEC form. If you need to report income of $600+ for contractors, freelancers, gig workers, etc, use the 1099NEC form. This information was previously reported on 1099MISC box 7.
1099-MISC forms are now used to report royalties, rent, prizes, proceeds to attorneys, fishing boat proceeds and other miscellaneous information. Official IRS 1099-NEC & MISC instructions.

For 2021, 1099NEC forms have changed to a 3up format (3-per-page) to save paper and make things more efficient.
