1099-MISC nonemployee compensation is something of a catch-all phrase for the filing requirements that apply to the self-employed, independent contractors, and other service professionals who earn their income outside the traditional employer-employee relationship. Now, it doesn’t include things like real estate sales, educational savings accounts, and retirement plans in so much that these fall under other 1099 filing forms. When figuring out which forms to use, you’ll need to consider all sources of payment and income.
Moreover, not all 1099-MISC form filings are directly related to nonemployee compensation. There are also things like crop insurance, boat sales proceeds, rents and royalties, attorney fees, and golden parachutes—the form really is a miscellaneous “remainder” category. We wouldn’t be surprised—and you shouldn’t be embarrassed—if you ever have to file a corrected form.
That said, even if you already know every last nuance and legal interpretation of the tax code, you still need software support to deliver the data entry and reporting efficiencies that have become standard for handling 1099-MISC nonemployee compensation form filing. This efficiency is precisely what Advanced Micro Solutions (AMS) can provide your business, specifically with our W2 and 1099 Software. And there are several reasons why we do it better than the competition.
Why Choose AMS for Your 1099-MISC Nonemployee Compensation?
1. Experience and Innovation. For more than 30 years, AMS has provided support for 1099-MISC nonemployee compensation, as well as other w-2 and 1099 filing needs. We’ve been there since the beginning when it comes to tax filing software systems. Needless to say, the software technology of the 1980s bares little resemblance to today’s systems. To this point, AMS is always on the lookout for new features that speak to our client’s needs. As a matter of fact, our payroll solution is the direct result of customers, who had fallen in love with our W-2/1099 platform, asking us to try our hand at payroll software. Moreover, we wasted no time in responding to the biggest change to occur to the tax code in quite some time: Comply with your 1094 and 1095 ACA filing requirements the first time with our ACA Filer module.
2. Affordability and Customization. Instead of free software downloads that fail to provide the performance you need—assuming they’re not outright scams—and instead of expensive software suites that tend to be unwieldy and deliver more features than you need, you can find affordable, effective software solutions. This is possible with AMS. One of the big ways we’re able to accomplish this is with sophisticated module interaction. Simply put, you can choose, from our catalog of products, precisely those software modules that address the filing needs of your business. At the same time, this strategy allows us to expand our roster of business clients, further driving down the price points of various software solutions.
3. Access and Support. From the get-go, you can expect to be able to leverage all of the software features from AMS. First, you can see what our software can do by downloading our free software demo. Second, our Support Knowledge Base is a great resource for answering the vast majority of questions you’re likely to have. That said, no software is so complete and user-friendly, especially when dealing with the tax code, that it doesn’t need live customer service. We offer email communications, a tech support line and, during peak filing season, a Live Chat feature. If you’re looking for more 1099-MISC-specific form support, we even have a dedicated FAQ page.
If you still have questions you want answered, don’t hesitate to contact our Sales and Information team at (800) 536-1099. Whether you’re interested in 1099-MISC nonemployee compensation or trying a new payroll method, we have a product to help.
