Employers should not file a 1099 form for payments sent to a tax-exempt nonprofit organization. Check to confirm that any business you sent a payment to qualifies under one of the types of exempt organizations. There are situations when you may still need to send out a 1099 form. A nonprofit that does business with other nonprofits must still fill out a 1099 for their own vendors, independent contractors, attorneys, and all other applicable parties. Filing requirements relate to your business’s transactions and overall legal structure. The Internal Revenue Service requires many nonprofits to fill out 990s as well. Exemptions for the form include specific government corporations and faith-based organizations.
