There’re various types of 1099 tax forms, but one of the most common is the Tax Form 1099-NEC. This form is typically sent to self-employed individuals, such as independent contractors, gig workers, and small business owners. As an independent contractor, gig worker, or small business owner, you may receive a Form 1099-NEC. This form reports income earned from work such as driving for DoorDash, freelancing on Upwork, or renting a room out on Airbnb.
As an independent contractor or small business owner, you may receive a 1099-NEC tax form from your clients or customers. This form reports money paid to you for services rendered. The “NEC” in the form’s name stands for “Non-employee Compensation.”
Before 2022, payments made to contractors and freelancers were reported on a 1099-MISC form instead. That form still exists but is now used for reporting different types of non-wage income.
Payers should send you Forms 1099-NECs earlier in the tax season so that you have time to get a tax return prepared and so that the IRS has proof of how much income you earned throughout the tax year. If you were using online tax services such as PriorTax and assisted by a Tax Service Professional, you will be asked to input the information from any Form 1099s when you fill out your return. When you hire a contractor, be sure that he fills out the W-9 Tax Form so that you will have his information when it is time to send him (and the IRS) your 1099-NEC. To get that information on every non-employee, you will have them fill out W-9 forms as soon as they begin working with you.
