1099 Reporting Requirements for 2023 - An Overview

Updated on January 18, 2024 - 10:30 AM by Admin, TaxBandits

The 1099 forms serve as a series of information returns utilized by the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) to monitor income paid to independent contractors and other non-employees. For the 2024 tax year, it is crucial to be aware of a few key updates in relation to the 1099 reporting requirements.

1. Updates on 1099 Reporting Requirements for the
2023 Tax year

There are no major changes in Form 1099 for the 2023 tax year. However, there are important updates you should be aware of:

  • Electronic Filing Threshold: The IRS has lowered the electronic filing threshold from 250 returns to 10 or more returns. This means that if you file at least 10 aggregate information returns in a year, electronic filing with the IRS is now mandatory. For example, if your total aggregated return is 12 (three 1099-NEC, four 1099-MISC, and five 1099-S), you should opt for e-filing.
  • Form 1099-K Threshold Delay: There's a temporary reprieve for Form 1099-K reporting. The threshold for payment card transactions from third-party settlement organizations (TPSSOs) like PayPal and Venmo will be $20,000, with more than 200 transactions for the 2024 tax year, delaying the initially planned $600 threshold.

2. 2024 Deadlines for 1099 Reporting

Most of the 1099 Forms have the same deadline, which is

  • January 31st: Recipient copies distribution
  • February 28th: Paper Filing
  • April 1st: E-filing deadline

However, there are some exceptions to this deadline

  • Form 1099-NEC: Both recipient and IRS copies are due by January 31.
  • Form 1099-MISC (Box 8 or 10): Recipient copies due by February 15.
  • Forms 1099-S and 1099-B: Recipient copies due by February 15.

3. New 1099 Penalties for 2024

Due to inflation, the IRS has increased the penalty rates for Form 1099. Effective after December 31, 2023, potential penalties include:

  • $60 per form- if Form 1099 is not filed within 30 days of the due date.
  • $110 per form - if Form 1099 is filed 30 days after the deadline but filed before August 1.
  • $310 per form- if Form 1099 is filed after August 1.
  • $630 per form: Intentional disregard.
