IRS Form 1099-NEC Due

January 31, 2021

IRS Form 1099-NEC must be sent to any independent contractor when a PTA has paid equal to or greater than $600 in the calendar year (January – December).

IRS Form 1099-NEC with IRS Form 1096 sent to the IRS.

From the tip of the week, Leadership News January 14:

If your PTA paid an independent contractor at least $600 in calendar year 2020, you must send to the independent contractor and the IRS form 1099-NEC, Nonemployee Compensation (NOT form 1099-MISC as in previous years), postmarked by January 31, 2021.

The IRS requires a paper copy of form 1099-NEC, accompanied by form 1096. These forms cannot be downloaded from the IRS website and must be ordered from Online Ordering for Information Returns. There is a penalty for filing late or failing to file. (The WSPTA office has a limited number of 1099-NEC forms available that can be sent to a PTA on a first-come, first-served basis.)

Keep copies of information returns you filed with the IRS with your PTA’s legal records for at least 3 years.

For more information, see 2020 General Instructions for Certain Information Returns and 2020 Instructions for Forms 1099-MISC and 1099-NEC.
