Form 1099-MISC and Form 1099-NEC Reporting 2021
Report on Form 1099-MISC or Form 1099-NEC only when payments are made in the course of your trade or business. Personal payments are not reportable. You are engaged in a trade or business if you operate for gain or profit. However, nonprofit organizations are considered to be engaged in a trade or business and are subject to these reporting requirements. Other organizations subject to these reporting requirements include trusts of qualified pension or profit-sharing plans of employers, certain organizations exempt from tax under IRC section 501(c) or 501(d), farmers’ cooperatives that are exempt from tax under IRC section 521, and widely held fixed investment trusts. Payments by federal, state, or local government agencies are also reportable.
