Now that the fourth quarter of 2022 has begun employers should begin preparing for the end of the year. This means a lot of extra tasks and responsibilities for businesses. One of the most important is the required year-end filing with the IRS.
The IRS requires that businesses report payments that were made for a variety of different reasons throughout the year. Some of the most commonly used 1099s are the 1099-NEC, 1099-MISC, and 1099-K.
These forms are now available in TaxBandits for the 2022 tax year. Here is a helpful overview of these forms, when they are due, and any updates for 2022 that you need to be aware of.

An Overview of Form 1099-MISC for 2022
While Form 1099-MISC hasn’t been used for reporting non-employee compensation since the 2019 tax year, it is still one of the most common 1099 forms. This form is used to report many different types of miscellaneous payments to the IRS.
The following payments of $600 or more should be reported on 1099-MISC:
Awards and prizes
Other income payments
Medical and health care payments
