How to Get, Prepare, and File Form 1099 Online

Getting form 1099 online is easy and free if your filing needs are modest and you plan ahead. Simply use the IRS site and online ordering portal. You can generally expect the forms to arrive within 10 business days, along with the corresponding instructions. If you wait till the last minute or if you have higher volume filing form requirement, things get more complicated. You may need to buy the forms at an office supply store. If you do have larger form filing needs, the most popular solution is to print your own blank forms and take care of your primary scannable forms through an e-file solution. (We’ll get back to this in a minute.)

Finding the Right Form 1099 Online

Form 1099 online instructions are also a big piece of the puzzle. While you’ll receive the instructions in your IRS form packet, you don’t want to order forms you don’t need, and you don’t want to wait a couple weeks to figure out whether it’s better to use form 1099-A or form 1099-C. Determine which 1099 forms you need by first looking at the General Instructions for Certain Information Returns. Once you know the type and number of filing forms, you can get started with confidence.
