Tracking down the correct forms for a filing year is one of the trickiest parts of back-filing taxes. This is especially the case with 2019 1099 MISC form, as the IRS changed the form in 2020. Following the reintroduction of the 1099 NEC in 2020, the 1099 MISC no longer reports nonemployee compensation. This change also created a slightly different form layout.
Now that the 2019 tax season has passed, you may not know where to access this form. This guide will explain where to find older versions of tax forms, like the 2019 1099 MISC form. We’ll also point out how a tax filing software, like our W-2/1099 Forms Filer, can make filing easier in the years to come.
Where to Buy Current Tax Forms
Filers can easily find the tax forms they need from multiple locations during tax season. If you’re working with 1099s or W2 forms, you can purchase them from the IRS, other online tax form suppliers, or from office supply stores like OfficeMax or Staples.
The IRS provides an online ordering form. Users can select the type and quantity of the forms needed and pay through the website. The current ordering form lists forms for tax years 2020 and 2021. You can also purchase instructions for the forms.
Sites like Amazon provide other option for online ordering. However, we want to caution business owners to check the product listing carefully to ensure the form is the version you need. Some listings here will come with mailing materials.
Office supply stores will mostly have tax forms for the current tax season. They have several different package options with different form quantities and mailing supplies. You can even compare form types on their websites to figure out which is the best option for you.
How to Buy the 2019 1099 MISC Form
If you’re looking to buy a copy of the 1099 form 2019, your options will be limited. The form suppliers listed above tend to only carry the current and next tax season forms. So, there are only a couple places you can buy copies of the form. Most of the options we found for sale are from sellers on eBay. You must be careful with these listings to ensure that the forms are genuine tax forms. It is best to look for unopened packages of forms.
There are likely to be some listings for the 2019 1099 MISC form on Amazon, too. As with eBay listings, make sure the form has the right year on it and is an IRS compliant form.
