There are 22 different forms of the 1099. Perhaps the most common is the 1099-MISC, on which certain payors are required to report everything from crop insurance proceeds to rents and royalties. Each type of payment is subject to its own reporting thresholds and exemptions. Needless to say, all of these rules are enough to frustrate even the most diligent payors. In this course we will demystify the 1099-MISC and provide you with the tools and resources to approach the filing of this form with confidence. 

Topics covered include:


  • The difference between 1099-MISC and 1099-NEC
  • Common misunderstandings about 1099 reporting generally
  • Various circumstances when 1099-MISC reporting is required
  • The panoply of reporting requirements with regard to the 1099-MISC
  • Exceptions to the reporting requirements
  • Reporting payments made to attorneys
  • Reporting deceased employee’s wages paid to an estate
  • Penalties and how to avoid them
