Choose the Right 1099-NEC Software for Your Business

1099-NEC software is one of the most useful accounting tools a small business can have. In 2020, the IRS shifted nonemployee compensation from 1099-MISC box 7 into its own form. Known as the 1099-NEC, this has become one of the most widely used iterations of the 1099. This shift is only bolstered by the market shift into working increasingly with independent contractors rather than hiring employees.

Whether you work at a large or small business, effective 1099-NEC software is essential for streamlined accounting. 1099 forms are notoriously difficult to keep track of. If your business works with a contractor for a week in April, you’ll still need to send them a 1099-NEC form in January of the following year. Having a dedicated W-2 and 1099 filer is the best way to keep track of every person you pay – whether they use a 1099-NEC, W-2, or W-3.



AMS software products rely on a powerful W-2/1099 Forms Filer as the base platform. We do this for a reason. Tax and wage forms are among the most important a business will file. If you’re in need of 1099 filing software, Advanced Micro Solutions has a tool to help.


What You Should Know About 1099-NEC Software

Many tools can help you fill out the 1099-NEC. But most software won’t have the auxiliary support you need to run efficient accounting. Here’s what you should keep in mind when shopping for a 1099-NEC tool.

  • You’ll want support for more than just the 1099-NEC. While the 1099-NEC might be one of the most-used 1099 forms, you’ll want support for other tax and wage forms. This includes W-2, W-3, and all iterations of the 1099.
  • Look for electronic filing and printing support. Tools like AMS integrate seamlessly with several filing, printing, and mailing options. Distributing the 1099-NEC is among the most time-consuming parts of the process. Look for a software that offers this support.
  • Prioritize software with data storage. Businesses collect thousands of pieces of data over the course of a year. Choose a software tool that can organize and store data for easy use during the annual tax season.
