The IRS published information regarding the new rules for filing 1099 nonemployee compensation. The PATH Act, P.L. 114-113, Div. Q, sec. 201, accelerated the due date for filing Form 1099 that includes nonemployee compensation (NEC) from February 28 to January 31 and eliminated the automatic 30-day extension for forms that include NEC.
Beginning with tax year 2020, Form 1099-NEC will be used to report nonemployee compensation. See IRS website for more information.
