Filing a 1099 form can be a little confusing and time-consuming, but don’t worry! Here are a few tips to help you through the process.

  • (For state filing) State income, payer state number, and state tax withheld

Depending on the type of 1099 you file, the filing deadline may differ. For example, Form 1099-INT must be furnished to recipients by January 31st, filed by February 28th if filing by paper, and by March 31st if filing electronically.

You can elect to file your 1099 by postal mail or electronically. The IRS does not mandate either option. 

If you choose to paper file, you will need to mail your form to the IRS at Internal Revenue Service Center, P.O. Box 219256, Kansas City, MO 64121-9256.

If you choose to file electronically, you’ll need to choose an IRS-authorized e-file provider like TaxBandits. These providers often include helpful instructions and information about e-filing.

Are there any penalties for late filing?

The IRS will impose penalties for failing to file a 1099. Penalties may be imposed because the payer failed to distribute the copies to recipients by the deadline or for providing incomplete or inaccurate information, in addition to filing past the deadline.

Penalties can range from $50 per return to $270 per return.

Is a 1099 required by the state?

Most states require a 1099 to be filed with the state. The state may require some additional information. Filing requirements may vary by state, but businesses must file forms directly with the state to meet both their state and federal tax filing requirements.
