YOU LIKELY NEED DIFFERENT 1099 FORMS THIS YEAR…
If you have used 1099MISC forms to report payments to contractors, freelancers or any type of nonemployee compensation (using Box 7), you need to change to the new 1099NEC forms for 2020.
SAY GOOD-BYE TO RED FORMS, AND HELLO TO E-FILING…
If you file 100 or more 1099 forms, you MUST E-FILE with the IRS in 2020.
This changes again next year, when anyone filing 10+ forms is required to efile.
LUCKILY, WE HAVE ONE EASY SOLUTION!
Instead of hassling with new forms, wondering if your software meets the new requirements – make the switch to online filing this year.
DiscountEfile.com is super simple and secure. Easily import data from QuickBooks and have us do the rest!
We’ll print and mail recipient copies and e-file with the IRS for one low price.
WHAT IS 1099NEC?
The 1099NEC Form is new for 2020.
It is used to report non-employee compensation that was previously reported in Box 7 of 1099-MISC form.
WHEN IS IT DUE?
Forms must be mailed to recipients by January 31.
They must also be mailed or e-filed with the IRS by Jan. 31, 2020.
WHO SHOULD USE IT?
Businesses required to report payments of $600 to contractors, freelancers, attorneys and more.
If you have used a 1099-MISC form in the past to do this, use the 1099-NEC for 2020.
ONE MORE THING…
E-filing thresholds have also changed for 2020.
If you file 100+ forms, you must efile. (It used to be 250+)
That will also change again in 2021, with e-file required for 10+ forms per payer.

Use them for Official W2 forms (2 of the same copies) or condensed 2up employee Copies B/C for federal filing.

3 forms on a sheet, typically with a vertical size strip to remove before mailing.
Use for condensed 3up W2 forms for employees, Copies B/C/2 for federal and state filing.

Use for 8pt W2 printing of employee Copies B/C/2/2 for federal, state and local filing.
Tips for Easier W2 Filing
Check your software for supported formats:
- Preprinted forms (prints data on a pre-made form) or
- Blank paper (prints data and boxes on a perforated sheet)
