A lot of the information out there for filing 1099 forms is geared toward employees and recipients, but knowing how to file an employer 1099 form is far from given, even for owners who already know a thing or two about 1099 business filings. In addition to providing powerful, intuitive software support, Advanced Micro Solutions (AMS) can also help you find relevant form instructions and filing requirements. This complete commitment to client satisfaction has earned us rave reviews and a loyal customer base for the more than 30 years in which we’ve been offering w-2, 1099, and payroll solutions.
Employer 1099 Form Information
Let’s start with the basics. The most common employer 1099 form is form 1099-MISC. This form is used to account for payments made to self-employed contractors and for other types of non-employee compensation. It’s far from the only 1099 business filing, however. There are 1099 filing requirements for qualified education programs (1099-Q), for financial planners and retirement fund managers (1099-R), and for real estate agencies and property holders (1099-S), just to name a few.
When it comes to accounting for an employee-employer type relationship, however, you’re usually going to report these payments either as a w-2 employer or as a 1099 payer. The critical question here is about the type of relationship determined by certain behavioral and financial characteristics. How controls the work? Who pays for incidental expenses? Are traditional employee benefits part of the compensation?
If this sounds complicated is, that’s because it is. Not just because of the tax code itself, but also because of the rapidly-evolving and largely-ambiguous ways in which the modern economy deploys its labor force. As a matter of fact, if an informal assessment doesn’t yield a clear answer, the IRS even provides Form SS-8 specifically for the purposes of asking the IRS to make an official determination.
